Open Science

In the SteeleLab, we are committed to open science. On this page, you will find a list our open science efforts, including information about open access, open data, our open source software projects, work related to open hardware, and some of my efforts at engaging dialogue with scientists about open science.

Open Access

We strive to have all of our publications available open-access (“green”) on the arxiv server (see publication page).

Open Data

In the group, we have started by working with a few basic levels of open data:

These definitions are based on a QN department policy that I developed with Anton Akhmerov.

In level 1, we may also include the measurements scripts and that controlled the equipment when the data was measured. In the group, our scripts typically use the open source library STLab, making it possible to fully reproduce the measurement procedure performed.

We are also looking towards the future beyond open data. For this, we are working on developing practical, pragmatic ways of more thoroughly documenting the research we do using the tools that modern ICT can offer.

Examples of publications including Level 1 Open Data:

Examples of publications including Level 0 Open Data:

Open Source Software

All of our code is released under the open source licences such as the GPL.

Open Hardware

Below, you can find a full bill of materials and details of contruction of our 2D material stamping setup. We are currently considering making more of our hardware projects fully open.

Open Science Dialogue

I think it’s important to stimulate dialogue with scientists about Open Science. Here are some of my efforts in this direction:
