SAFS professors Parrish and Roberts highlighted for their open science work

To celebrate International Open Access Week, the University of Washington Libraries posted profiles and interviews with two SAFS faculty, Julia Parrish and Steven Roberts, about how they conduct their research openly. The interview with Julia Parrish focuses on her citizen science work, which involves trained members of the public identifying and pinpointing the locations of more than 10,000 dead birds on the Pacific coast each year, and making the data available openly as well as in scientific publications. A different approach is followed by Steven Roberts, who uses open lab notebooks that anyone can follow along as they enter their data and lab notebooks. The Roberts lab also posts preprints of their work online before submitting it to scientific journals, and shares their work via social media.
