Nice post on integrating clinical trials metadata and Wikidata
 
What would add value to have on Wikipedia pages for clinical trials? How could they support for example in recruiting and retaining patients? How could the underlying structured data in Wikidata be useful useful? I had hoped...

Are you going to attend ISMB 2016 ( https://www.iscb.org/ismb2016 - July 8-12 in Orlando) and would be interested in helping run a Wikipedia/ Wikidata editathon? If so, please get in touch.

Publishing H2020 Proposals
Figure from the RIO paper. Over a year ago Daniel Mietchen invited me to join writing a H2020 proposal around Open Science. Well, that combines two of my current worlds, so interesting indeed. But there was more: Daniel wanted to do the writing openly, and ...

"Executable research" is a good term. I'll read the editorial and give the idea some more thought!

I'm happy to announce that a new journal is geared towards publishing all elements of the research cycle, from the first idea to the final outcomes.

Dubbed RIO Journal - for Research Ideas and Outcomes - it lives on
http://riojournal.com/
and will start accepting submissions in November.

Some of its key features are summarized at
http://rossmounce.co.uk/2015/09/01/im-supporting-rio-journal-i-think-you-should-too/
:
- it will publish research all along the research cycle
- it will map its content to societal challenges
- it will make its peer review fully transparent
- it lets authors choose which services they want from the journal
- it uses a collaborative authoring platform that turns WYSIWYG into
JATS, the XML format required for ingestion into PubMed Central

It will start accepting submissions in November. Suggestions for
subject editors in your areas of expertise are most welcome, as are
any other forms of feedback.

A new Q&A site around #openscience is now up at http://openscience.stackexchange.com/ . It uses the +Stack Exchange platform and is currently in private beta, which means that existing users like me can let you in if they have your email.

It's strange for an open science platform to be closed, but I hope that this won't last long, and the more active the site is in private beta, the earlier it should be able to switch to public.

It seems to be open now. I signed up.

I think the whole idea of on-demand query-based learning is very important, and it will eventually replace much of the traditional sequester approach to education.

Story
Tagline
Science with a public version history
Introduction
Having studied biophysics and some related subjects, I gained experimental and theoretical experience in the study of biological systems at most levels of organisation, using a range of physicochemical methods. Over the last years, I have focused on the application of Magnetic Resonance techniques to the study of biological phenomena like cell division, drug uptake, embryogenesis, fossilisation, insect hibernation, music perception and brain morphometry. I strive to do my research and teaching in the open as far as possible, and I have a strong interest in improving scholarly communication, particularly by way of wikis and blogs.
