Effectiveness of Open Science Policies at ESEC/FSE 2019

Introduction For those who don’t know me, I have been advocating for open science (open access, open data, and open source) practices in software engineering research for many years now. Sometimes I could push my role into a more practical, hands-on one, and I could help developing better tools or platforms towards openness. Other times, my passion has been recognized to put me into more...

[Explained] Foundations for Open Scholarship Strategy Development

Together with a large group (32) of researchers belonging to all disciplines, we formed a committee to draft a proposal for strategies to develop open scholarship (like open science but broader to include all disciplines) at individual, group, and national level, and short, mid, and long-term. The document was developed as a response to some criticisms to the open science movement that, as a...

[Explained] How do you feel, developer? An explanatory theory of the impact of affects on programming performance

Graziotin, D., Wang, X., & Abrahamsson, P. (2015). How do you feel, developer? An explanatory theory of the impact of affects on programming performance. PeerJ Computer Science, 1, e18. doi:10.7717/peerj-cs.18 Open access. Click the link and read the study. We have established that pre-existing affect (or, one might dare to say, happiness) of software developers is positively correlated with...

Retiring rchiveit and its rchive.it domain

Four years have passed since the launch of rchiveit and its domain rchive.it. For those who did not know, rchiveit is (used to be) a modern frontend to SHERPA/RoMEO, for discovering how and when to self-archive academic articles and make them openly accessible to everybody in the worlds. I developed rchiveit mainly for two reasons: to refresh my JavaScript knowledge (and tryout Bootstrap), and to...

Review: PeerJ Computer Science

Given the general appreciation forx my small series of author-based reviews of academic journals, I will now report my experience with PeerJ Computer Science. PeerJ Computer Science is the second journal launched by the academic publisher of the PeerJ journal, which is called PeerJ, Inc. It was launched recently. The first articles appeared on the 26th of June. PeerJ Computer Science shares...

Opening up your science – including computer science

In two days, I will give a 1-hour talk about open science at the University of Oulu, Finland. For this very special occasion, I built a monster presentation about open science principles in computer science. However, it is general enough for all disciplines. Feel free to reuse it. Citation: Graziotin, Daniel (2015): Opening up your science – including computer science. figshare. DOI:10...

Announcing Altmetric support at The Winnower

As part of my commitment to make The Winnower a (even more) better place to publish scientific results and discussions, I am proud to announce that each archived article at The Winnower now features Altmetric stats. Josh posted a nice article explaining why Altmetric is an important feature to foster scientific discussion. I suggest you to read it. The most important point to be echoed here is...

Joining The Winnower

I am proud to join The Winnower, a revolutionary open science project, as Web software engineer and advisor. The Winnower is an innovative open science publishing platform-i.e., an academic journal-that employs open post-publication peer review. The platform aims to revolutionize how science is communicated by breaking down the barriers to scientific communication. While its founder Josh...
