21 Tips on how to sound #openscience: in the last three weeks before x-mas, I will tweet on tip each day on how to sound like an open scientist, without actually doing open science. Enjoy! Image of a x-mas candle wit...
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #1: provide temporary green #openaccess to paywalled literature without an open license during a global health crisis (only for one crisis is enough)
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #2: host a website, tell everyone they can use it, allow everyone to use it in publication (free advertisement), but do not allow others to reuse it. Better ever, say: "but it is on the internet!"
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #3: set up a commission/team to just talk about open science; you do not have to take any actions or do anything.
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #4: despite being able to use the Open Document Format, insist on using a semi-proprietary ("hybrid") format in your scholarly collaborations, because ".docx can be read by everyone, right?"
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #5: sign @DORAssessment (but continue to allow the use of the impact factor at your institute to assess individual researchers and research output)
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #6: just claim that something is open science because it uses something else that already has an open license
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #7: put the data presented in your article in a figure of a table in a supplementary PDF
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #8: put compiled code on GitHub or SourceForge
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #9: set up a database with matching website but do not respond to feedback and curation events by other people
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #10: even if you keep advertising journals that do nothing about open science, just call yourself an Open Science company (repeat it often enough and get buy-in from customers)
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #11: provide a free to use webservice (e.g. REST-like API) but do not provide the source code
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #12: start an open science community and only talk how important it is that researchers share their data
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #13: drop presentation slides in @zenodo of @figshare with a "all rights preserved" license
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #14: announce you make citations available in @CrossrefOrg ("for reuse") but do not mention the open license and do not join the @i4oc_org community
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #17: provide a fancy cloud API to useful data and provide an email address where you can ask for permission
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #15: "Data available upon reasonable request"
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #16: allow (paying) customers write plugins for your science platform for free
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #18: use an pre-2000 publishing platform and start a CC-BY license #openaccess journal where others can publish their work
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #19: Sue @Sci_Hub in India because this is not good for Open Science.
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #20: Start a data hub but focus predominantly on confidential data. Just make sure other people can host Open Data too.
21 Tips on how to sound #openscience #21: Start an Open Science website where people can register to ask permission to join and if accepted, they can look at proprietary data.
That wraps it up! You no longer have no excuse not to sound #openscience! Merry Winterbreak!

we're going to have a big copyright law fight in science... putting scientific knowledge online, allows legal scraping in the USA. That means, putting data online, puts it out in the open. I am not sure if the scraped data falls under copyright (does it)? 1/
but that latter is not the point: by taking data from a licensed source that does not allow redistribution, and you put it online, you *are* distributing it. Similar thing we see with SPARQL end points. The scraping there is trivial. 2/
it nicely shows that most researches don't git a s***/f*** (depending on region) about copyright law (also why many happily give it for free to publishers). Few journals give a s***/f*** (depending on publisher) either. 3/

in a few weeks, I will speak at the @RoySocChem "Open Chemical Science" meeting. The originally planned venue has an awesome library. #OpenChem20 1/
@RoySocChem the #OpenChem20 meeting coincides with #BH2020, so it's going to be an extremely busy and long week. There will be a lot of talking about open science chemistry at #openchem20 and a lot of doing open science chemistry at #bh2020 2/
@RoySocChem The full #OpenChem20 meeting consists of three sections: Open Data, Open Access, and Open Source. See rsc.org/events/detail/… 3/

jammer dat de @RathenauNL "Balans van de Wetenschap 2020" nog behoorlijk vol staat (iig in eerste 49 bladzijden) met internationale ranking schetjes. Niet nuttig voor hoe we verder moeten :(
@RathenauNL ik vind de hele karakterisatie van NL in het internationale speelveld wat dun ijs... :(
@RathenauNL paragraaf 2.4 is een mooi voorbeeld daarvan... "state of the art" lijkt direct gekoppeld te zijn aan hoe duur het was... ach... je bent als Nederlander rentmeester of niet, zal ik dan maar denken :(

@pcmasuzzo I think the more important roles of the #openscience "leaders" right now is being vocal about what things are now being sold as "openscience" but are not. (but searching myself too!)
maybe to give some examples: "open access" to COVID19 articles that cannot be redistributed by others --> not #openscience
web scraping content from a website that did not have any license statement --> not #openscience
