In this episode we talk to Kerstin Helbig about the research data management (RDM)project FDNext, which is also where our co-host Emma Harris' new role will be based. We discussed what the approach of FDNext is, the challenges of implementing effective RDM, and how it fits into the wider framework of Open and FAIR Data initiatives.

In this episode we talked about 'almighty' algorithms with Carlos Castillo, Lorenzo Porcaro, Marzieh Karimihaghighi, David Solans, and Francesco Fabbri from the Web Science & Social Computing Research Group, and the department of Engineering in Information & Communication Technologies, in Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. We discussed how bias can enter into algorithm systems, how bias is measured, and what systems are impacted by it.
In this episode we talk to Yo Yehudi and Malvika Sharan, two of the co-founders and organisers of the Open Life Science training and mentoring program. We discuss why mentorship and community are so important in encouraging open science, what makes the program unique, and what the future for Open Life Science.
In this episode we cover the eLife Innovation Sprint 2020, that was held online on September 2nd and 3rd, 2020. The sprint facilitates collaboration between people who are working on tools, services, and other projects that enhance open science and research.
We talk to the organiser Dr Emmy Tsang, who at the time was the Innovation Community Manager for eLife but is now the Community Engagement Manager for TU Delft. As well as participants from two of the projects that took part: Dr Cássio Amorim, creator of SciGen.Report, 'a platform to easily share and view any information that researchers may have on the reproducibility of papers'. And Esha Datta and Daniel Nüst, who who both joined the sprint to work on the Expanding Open Grants project, developed by Dr Hao Ye, which increases accessibility to examples of grants and proposals.

In this episode we talk to Wiebke Hollersen, a science journalist and editor from the German newspaper Welt, and Dr Emanuel Wyler, a molecular biologist at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine, about their approaches, collaborations, and concerns about communicating about the Coronavirus and science communication in general.
In this episode we talk to Alex Shkor about his company DEIP which is a peer review platform and blockchain protocol for the evaluation of intellectual capital, research, and innovation. We discussed why Alex created this platform, what the potential for digital research and big data is, and how Open Science can accelerate research.
In this episode we talk to Joy Owango, Founding Director at Training Centre in Communication. We discussed how Open Science is democratising research and access to data and publishing in Africa, the importance of ownership in research, and the challenges inherent in widespread change.
Originally we interviewed another two guests who are involved in the Open Science movement on the African continent: Osman Aldirdiri, founding director of Open Sudan initiative and Jo Havemann, co-founder of the AfricArXiv. Due to technical difficulties we can only publish the audio from Joy Owango. However, we do have a transcript of the full interview with all three guests.
In this episode we talk to two copyright lawyers, Malcolm Bain and Lucrezia Berto, about what the legal framework of research creation and sharing is. Who owns your research? What needs to be considered before you make it open?
In this episode we talk to Dylan Roskams-Edris from Open Science Alliance Officer at Tanenbaum Open Science Institute and The Neuro in Canada. We discussed how The Neuro made itself into the worlds first open neuroscience institution, the challenges and opportunities of embracing Open Science at an institutional level, how Open Science itself needs to be more open, and the potential for scientists working in such a system.
