I am happy to announce that I got accepted for being a fellow for free knowledge and open science (Fellow-Programm Freies Wissen), which is sponsored by Wikimedia Foundation. The program includes some money as well as mentoring and opportunities to network with other people, which are enthusiastic about open science.
Due to corona, the event was online. The first day we had a nice presentation with Judith Simon about ethics in computer science and especially in artificial intelligence and machine learning. The second day was all about our projects. We talked to our mentors and the people from Wikimedia gave us an overview over the program and open science in general
You can find my project at the project page. It will be about improving our project Schularchive (school archives). Our focus is three-fold:
- We want to promote the platform more to attract more users within the research community history of education as well as archivists at schools.
- We want to improve the platform using feedback of users.
- We want to dive deeper into the question how data stored at our wiki can be connected with wikidata and ultimately, which data should be in our wiki and which data should be in wikidata
If you want to connect or use the platform for your teaching, contact us via the platform or via or Twitter account: @Schularchive.
We also did a little networking and other fellows recommended interesting pages I want to share:
- Open Science Handbook, written by mentors of the program
- Open science mooc: /blog/
- Topfactor.org – Ranking of journals based on Open Science
- Research impact canvas (project planning tool for open science projects)
