In some regards, “digital science” may be considered synonymous with “science in the 21st century.” Within dSHARP, therefore, our focus is more specifically on “open science” within the world of digital research and publishing, including advocating for the use of
- open access software and datasets
- open access publishing for research and data
- data management planning, with particular attention to data publishing and preservation
Within the dSHARP core team, we have particular expertise in data visualization (Scott Weingart), research data management and the research lifecycle (Lisa Zilinski), and digital publication and scholarly communications (David Scherer).
