Heute möchte ich mir etwas Zeit nehmen, mit euch über #OpenScience,
#Wissenschaftskommunikation und #SocialMedia zu sprechen.
Nicht erst seit der Replikationskrise, aber seither stark zunehmend wird die Forderung nach
transparenter und reproduzierbarer Wissenschaft lauter. Verständlich.
Die meisten von euch kennen das Reproducibility-Project. Die Open Science Collaboration
hat 2015 diesen lesenswerten Artikel veröffentlicht:…

In addition to the wonderful personal experiences, #EAMT2023 was also a professional highlight for me that has really inspired me and reassured me that my work is useful and appreciated. A bragging-thread 👇 cc @EAMT_2023 @lt3ugent @SignONEU Image
🎉 I presented MATEO, a tool for effortless #MT evaluation! It received an overwhelming response from researchers, users, and industry, validating my belief that improving accessibility to #opensource #evaluation methods fills a need. Check it out here:
The project funding (thank you @EAMTee and @CLARINERIC!) is ending this month but I've had the pleasure to talk to many engaging people to keep the project alive in an #openscience manner for the foreseeable future. All contributions and ideas are welcome!…

If institutions & funders are serious about #OpenScience & #OpenResearch then they have to reassess reward & recognition systems for academics so that there is a culture change away from traditional prestige publishing
#ScalingSmall #OABooks
It's about redirecting labour & funds to #open rather than propping up the status quo - part of this is for academic institutions to work with publishers to develop sustainable & equitable #openaccess options (not just those funded by TAs, APCs & BPCs)...
#ScalingSmall #OABooks
Also key for publishers to work with academic libraries to ensure #openaccess content can be found & accessed via library discovery layers + embedded in teaching.
#OA content should be as discoverable to library-users as paywalled content! #MetadataMatters

¿Qué nos dice la evidencia científica disponible hasta el momento sobre los efectos del ejercicio físico (EF) en la cognición? Hemos abordado esta cuestión en un trabajo recién publicado en la revista @NatureHumBehav Image
Hemos escuchado muchas veces que el EF es bueno para nuestro cuerpo, pero últimamente que también lo es para nuestro cerebro y nuestra capacidad cognitiva #MenSanaInCorporeSano. Una búsqueda rápida nos da multitud de enlaces a noticias sobre investigaciones al respecto.
En nuestro trabajo, revisamos 24 meta-análisis (MA), incluyendo 109 estudios controlados por aleatorización (ECA; el "gold standard" para establecer relaciones causales), 11,266 participantes en total, sanos, y de todas las edades. Image

Tweeting about Excess Mortality, I sometimes encounter strong vibes by "liberal statisticians™" telling me of all my calculations are very, very bad and wrong 😱 because I do not consider aging of population.
(Short answer: Nope)

What I usually do: I calculate trend from death numbers - this is a very precise metric and I extrapolate by a linear model.
This works well, this can also be done by excel or other tools.
For Germany this looks as follows:

3/N "Age standardisation" is often told to be the "gold standard" for mortality metrics. You can find a description here:…

Ready for: "Perspectives on #Metadata Quality and Completeness" with @mragucci Jessica Clark & @AnaHeredia2017 #NisoPlus2023
The Publisher perspective on #MetadataImpact - @mragucci - #Metadata is like #TheForce in #StarWars - it is often invisible but powers so much in research and information exchange #NISOPlus2023 ImageImage
@mragucci Robust standardised #metadata is powerful for all stakeholders in information & knowledge exchange - but practices & standards vary greatly across content types. Ultimately, publishers & content providers have a responsibility to think downstream about the end user #NISOPlus2023 Image

Now we’ve talked about the value of #ResearchData and #RDM, let’s get into the #FAIRData principles! These state that research data should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.
Let’s start with #Findability! We can only use #ResearchData if we know how to look for them. This means that data (& metadata) not only need to be registered in a searchable database, but also to be indentified in a way that is clear, consistent and unique. Text: "Findability means putting data in a library and
#Accessibility requires that the protocol for finding (meta)data using this unique label is standardized, free and open. Different people and machines should have the same opportunity to search for and access the data!

1/4 Interesting study regarding #LDL-C vs all cause mortality*

✅NHANES -- so it's #OpenScience 👏
✅Lowest LDL-C associates with highest ACM
⚠️ No short term censoring (more on this below)

(*had in my reading list, but forgot until ht
A couple notes...

1️⃣ Many assume the higher ACM associated with LDL-C is due to "reverse causality". It's a hypothesis, to be sure, but one I think worth exploring.

Thus, it would have been ideal of the authors tried at least one or more analyses censoring 2-3 years.
2️⃣ As always, be aware these data are observational.

And as I say often👇

(Always worth a mention of Bradford Hill and his criteria, btw)

Our immune system is essential in keeping us healthy.

But the immune system also changes profoundly as we age.

Why is that? Could we prevent it?

Let's see how #singlecell biology can help us better understand #immune #aging

First, some background.

Everybody knows that the immune system is hugely complex.

#singlecell sequencing has (arguably) done more for the immune system than for other health applications.

Via #scRNAseq, we discovered & characterized crazily detailed immune cell phenotypes. Image
Such detailed phenotypes have been found in both healthy and diseased tissues.

I wrote several threads about this topic and find it to be one of the most foundational & fascinating progresses that have happened in biomedicine in the past 10 years.

[1/n] For any aspiring scientists hoping to learn Python 🐍, a great #OpenScience resource is "Python for Neuroscience." They cover everything from the basics of object-oriented programming to machine learning. A 🧵 covering some of my favorite chapters: @PhDVoice @ThePhDPlace
[2/n] "The Scientific Stack - Part 1-2" This chapter goes over essential tools for scientific programming, including NumPy, pandas (data management), SciPy (statistical or signal processing), and matplotlib (cornerstone for data visualization in Python). ……
[3/n]"Testing and Test-Driven Development" This chapter talks about why "unit tests" make your code more transparent. Essentially, a unit test demonstrates that a portion of your code does what it is supposed to do. Helpful for package development
