We are proud to share that the UCSF Library is entering a new phase to support data science and open scholarship. Building on the success of our scholarly communication services and data science initiative, we have now launched a Data Science and Open Scholarship (DSOS) team that will strengthen our support for these areas through a collaborative approach. The DSOS team will be dedicated to raising awareness and building excitement for open research and scholarship at UCSF. Together this team will:
- Teach classes, offer consultations, and create educational resources on programming, scholarly communication, statistics and bioinformatics, data engineering, and data management.
- Connect scholars with campus resources, computing tools, and platforms.
- Advocate for “open” data and scholarship practices by highlighting new research pathways.
- Build dynamic and energizing spaces, both physically and virtually, that facilitate
connection and communication across the UCSF community.
- Partner with colleagues across the library and UCSF community to enhance data science and open scholarship efforts.
