Open Scholarship

Science is for everyone, not just a privileged “elite”

This is a list of all articles and personal activities relating in some way to supporting ‘Open Scholarship’ – something I feel is just about doing science right, based on principles and values of equity, liberation, inclusivity, rigour, transparency, and accountability (to name a few). To get in touch about any of this, you can email me. Please feel free to share and reuse any of the content here.
