Join us for a free public event to launch the OSBH crowd funding campaign. We'll be presenting the project, and releasing our two latest hive designs: the Colorado Top Bar v5 and Warré v2.
You can see more about the project at www.opensourcebeehives.net
Please join us in person at Green Spaces in Denver, or via Google Hangouts. If you'd like to host your own Open Source Beehives launch party, you can find all the resource you'll need via the link below.
We look forward to seeing you there!

An incomplete picture of reputable research in Life Sciences, brought to you by Elsevier. The reasoning behind the ad: they are recent Nobel laureates who have published in Elsevier journals. Framed as "the picture of reputable research," they send an insulting, and simply an incorrect message. For the sake of your reputability, publish #openaccess , not with #Elsevier .

"Calling for open science and liberal dissemination of knowledge, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday said medical technologies having global relevance like cure for AIDS or cancer should not be patented....Speaking in favour of open science, he said there was a need for liberal dissemination of knowledge. “Open science is more conducive to the rate of growth of society’s stock of knowledge. I, therefore, call for an approach that aligns befitting returns from science and knowledge”. Mr. Omar said while patents on innovations may give a sense of ownership to the innovation and science entrepreneur, the benefits of science should not be exclusive."

From FY 2015 budget request (p. 41): "By opening up Government-generated assets including data and the fruits of federally funded research and development (R&D) — such as intellectual property and scientific publications — to the public, Government can empower individuals and businesses to significantly increase the public's return on investment in terms of innovation, job creation, and economic prosperity."

I'm more inclined to support open-source solutions. But open-source type solutions are currently harder to use I think, so for those who don't have the technical know-how and don't have time to acquire such skills, LabArchives may be the way to go.
For myself, I favor Github and also Open Science Framework for code and data archiving, and also for code management in the case of github. For example, for the project I'm currently working on, I'm in a data analysis phase and am using github for all the version control through R, here: https://github.com/alexholcombe/speed-tf-VSS14 .
For archiving data, I'm currently inclined to use Open Science Framework, e.g. program code and data for experiments associated with an in-revision paper is here : https://osf.io/t4vmy/
OSF actually doesn't require technical know-how at all (although they're adding integration with github, which I may use in future), but it's mainly just a place to drop files currently.
Neither GitHub nor OSF have daily-lab-notebook type functionality, but I don't need that because all the parameters and details associated with running a subject in an experiment are automatically saved by my PsychoPy program when I execute it, including a frozen copy of the code at the time it was run and system info. For those using equipment not integrated together, like say a neuropsychological test done with paper and pencil, an EEG run somewhere else, and a behavioral test, a lab notebook might make more sense.
