‘Early career researchers want Open Science’ is the title of a 2017 publication in Genome Biology by a group of talented early career researchers. They participated in the 2016 LERU summer school on Data Stewardship. Read the paper.
The summer school took place in July 2016 and was organised by LERU, Leiden University, and Leiden University Medical Center. DTL supported the event. The summer school’s theme was ‘Data Stewardship for Scientific Discovery and Innovation’. (Read a report.) The students were introduced to several aspects of data stewardship by experts in the field, including Myles Axton, editor of Nature Genetics. Following the summer school, the students felt a strong need to express a sense of urgency towards changing how we deal with data in the research community. Their paper may well prove to be a milestone for the next generation of scientists.
