Hi IGDORE family!
Sorry being late to this forum! I had a huge trouble setting up my email account, as I was so used to “one click” sign in and did not realize there are quite a bit of works involved. But I finally managed to figured out! I guess the PhD is not so useful when setting up an email account
Thanks Rebecca for organizing such a wonderful group working on Open Science. and Thanks to Jonathan who introduced me to IGDORE! I was once a scientist myself until I hit the pay wall and had no access to my own paper Since then, I am a big fan of Open Science and has been trying to promote it in Taiwan.
So far it has been very difficult! Hence the culture is so different! Here are the list of things I found in Taiwan;
Open Access = Predatory Journals
Academics are afraid to talk about Open Access, OA has became the “Voldemort”, the name that you can not speak out.
Academics refused to get an ORCID, they worry about privacy issue, at the same time heavy Facebook user
General public don’t understand Open Science and said to my face “I Don’t Care!”
Although there are many difficulties, but I am optimistic and believe there is always light at the end of the tunnel! If you know what is the best way for me to promote Open Science, please let me know!
Thanks for your time reading this! Let’s work on this together
