The Future of Open Science

What does the Future of Open Science look like?

The topic of this episode is the future of Open Science, and what it’s like to be an outspoken critic of the current publishing system.

Our guest is Jon Tennant, paleontologist, independent researcher and the founder of Open Science MOOC.

Tennant completed his award-winning Ph.D. at Imperial College London where he researched evolutionary patterns in animals like dinosaurs and crocodiles.

For the last 2 years, he was the Communications Director for ScienceOpen, and has given dozens of talks, webinars, and workshops about all things open science.

He is the founder of the Open Science MOOC, the digital publishing platform paleorXiv, and currently works as a PLOS Paleo Community Editor.

Tennant can be followed on his Twitter page.
He was also a Keynote speaker at the annual Munin Conference in Tromsø this fall. You can see his talk here.
