okay, I finished our report. I hope I did not forget important work. Quite happy with the results; we did quite a bit of innovative work for the number of man months available, mostly because of which makes it so much simpler and far more efficient to collaborate between projects

today and tomorrow we will have the first NWO Open Science grant (*) hackathon meeting for the BridgeDb project. This one is aimed at updating the existing tools to create mapping databases. In January (likely) we have the second hackathon that will be open to a much wider audience

*) the grant proposal is published at: doi.org/10.3897/rio.8.e83031

where scientific journals are failing, scholars can pick up knowledge dissemination. Proud to have contributed to this awesome project about curation and dissemination of natural product knowledge in an approach, including the use of doi.org/10.7554/elife.70780

"In this article, ..." (sarcasm) 

"In this article, I suggest countermeasures against the New Terrorism of open science, open inquiry, and open debate from the point of view of the heroic gatekeeper, Reviewer 2, who tries their best to always reject manuscripts that dare challenge our authority."

Fwd: second update report for the NWO grant: chem-bla-ics.blogspot.com/2022 (including some words about the NWO ISAAC browser add-on to add articles with DOIs)

in the past week I have started annotating CAS registry numbers in with references to indicate CAS Common Chemistry w.wiki/3AGr This, in turn, is starting to be used to validate the CAS numbers in the English Wikidata (I can reports for other langauges too, tho)

I attended two meeting last week, both about : first the Beilstein Open Science symposium, followed by the Google Summer of Code Summit. Great meetings!

a quick update on our #openscience feedback on #plan_S 

83 people now signed the feedback on Plan S (how scholarly publishing will look like 5 years from now) which is to be submitted tomorrow. We have about 30 hours left. If you care about Open Science, please have a look at: docs.google.com/document/d/14G

Because is more than an license and business model.

About my book... "Groovy Cheminformatics rises from the ashes" chem-bla-ics.blogspot.com/2018

I moved to Markdown but wanted to preserve live code and autogenerated reference sections.

I am looking for a PhD student interested in , ontologies, and nanomaterials and their interactions with living matter, to work on the NanoCommons project: academictransfer.com/en/50675/
