Meeting info#


You’re welcome to join us for our next Data Ethics Club meeting on Wednesday the 17th March at 1-2pm GMT. You don’t need to register, just pop in. This time we’re going to read #bropenscience is broken science by Kirstie Whitaker and Olivia Guest, which is a short paper arguing for a more inclusive definition of Open Science, and a more inclusive culture within Open Science communities.

Natalie suggested this week’s content, and will lead this week’s meeting.

Discussion points#

There will be time to talk about whatever we like, relating to the paper, but here are some specific questions to think about while you’re reading.

  • (When) have you noticed or experienced a “bro”-like culture in Open Science, reproducibility, data science, or your area of work/study?

  • What do you think about the idea that “bros find it hard to understand – or accept – that others will have a different lived experience”?

  • What did you think about the suggested actions in the paper? Would you take these? Why or why not?
