New paper: Ecology and conservation researchers should adopt open source technologies

Hello everyone,

Following @julianstirling’s recent example, I’d like to share a new paper that @briannaljohns, @AmandaMatthes, and I recently published:

Citation:

Hsing, P.-Y., Johns, B., & Matthes, A. (2024). Ecology and conservation researchers should adopt open source technologies. Frontiers in Conservation Science, 5. DOI: 10.3389/fcosc.2024.1364181

And there’s an official Tweet (aka X-cretion) from the publisher (warning: Musk link):

In this opinion piece, we argue for the adoption of open science hardware in ecology and conservation research. Please share, critique, and (sigh…) cite as appropriate!

I’d like to heap my thanks and praise on @briannaljohns and @AmandaMatthes for helping me bring a GOSH perspective to ecology/conservation. :bowing_woman: :hearts:

I am also really grateful to @andrew.david.thaler for sharing their OpenCTD story. We were able to cite their recent, excellent paper about OpenCTD.
