Amazing turnout at @UoNUCU@twitter.com rally today! Stand with @UCU@twitter.com. Enough is enough
Fantastic start to Day 1 of #ucuRISING @UoNUCU@twitter.com. This is the biggest action the union has ever taken but it's also a last resort. We stand ready to negotiate a fair deal for all HE staff. The employers could make different choices. We deserve better. Students deserve better.
Aberdeen's University Librarian @simonjbains announced our new rights retention policy today!
Seems niche, but is super important for fighting the supervillains in for-profit publishing.
Uni staff can no longer be made to sign over copyright to publish. All work will be made freely available to all in the university repository.
We have an amazing Open Research Team at the library 📚 🦸♀️ 🏆. Thank you!

Four takeaways from our recent survey on #methods sharing:
1️⃣ Methods sections alone are insufficient
2️⃣ Researchers see methods sharing as important...
3️⃣ ...but aren't satisfied with their ability to achieve their goals
4️⃣ The main blockers are practical in nature
Finally an #introduction post! I'm an academic librarian in Nottingham, UK with a PhD in Learning Sciences and professional interests in #openresearch #scholcomm #openaccess #responsiblemetrics #discovery #persistentidentifiers. My profile links to my ORCID publication record.
A nice addition to the @ORCID_Org website to help integrate with Mastodon would be to support the use of the rel="me" attribute in a way that Mastodon users can use it to #verify academic identities.
This would let links to ORCID's show in green with check marks on user profiles, thus quickly proving that the account is run by the person associated with that #ORCID.
There's already an issue open, so go up vote if you'd like to see this supported
