Call for Nominations: Dryad Scientific Advisory Committee

Crossposted from the Dryad Blog

Dryad was founded over a decade ago by researchers who called for an open, accessible home for research data to be curated, archived and published. Since its founding, Dryad has long been rooted in researcher values, led by and serving various scientific communities. 

In recent discussions, and raised at a recent NSF supported workshop focusing on researcher perspectives, it has become clear that beyond our governing, Dryad should have a committee of scientists across disciplines and career stages who can advise on Dryad’s strategic directions and provide expert advice on field standards.

DryadWe are pleased to announce a call for nominations for the inaugural Dryad Scientific Advisory Committee. As Dryad’s current and future users include a broad diversity of individuals, disciplines of study, geographies, career stages and backgrounds, this Scientific Advisory Committee will reflect that global and diverse perspective, and operate using inclusive participation practices. This group will meet quarterly, provide feedback on strategic plans or initiatives and be an advocate for Dryad as well as relay community concerns to Dryad’s leadership. The time commitment involved will be 10-20 hours over the course of the year. 

Please consider nominating a colleague or yourself here. We ask in the nomination process that you please consider current or emerging leaders in their field of study and voices that may not already be represented in the open science community.
