Funding agencies behind the radical open-access initiative Plan S have announced a policy that could make it possible for researchers to bypass journals’ restrictions on open publishing.
Some researchers worry students will miss out on certain practical and problem-solving skills and won’t be able to judge whether the hands-on work of a scientist is a good fit for them. But instructors are developing high-tech ways to simulate the field and lab experiences.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to rethink what constitutes necessary travel. Many of this year’s conferences have been cancelled. Some have gone virtual. Nature presents an original analysis of the potential emissions savings of doing things differently.
US President Donald Trump’s government has dropped its plans to deport international students whose courses move fully online because of the coronavirus pandemic.
To address the problem of poor reporting, Percie du Sert and a team of researchers have developed a checklist of 10 critical details each animal study needs to report, such as the number of animals used, their sex, whether they were randomly allocated to a test group and control group, and whether the researchers knew which animal was in which group.
As meetings worldwide have been called off, postponed or moved online because of the pandemic, organizations are trying to weather the cost of cancelling meetings while grappling with the long-term effects that the pandemic could have on their activities and on the research community.
