Second National Plan for Open Science — Generalising open science in France

refers to the unhindered dissemination of results, methods and products from scientific research. It draws on the opportunity provided by recent digital progress to develop open access to publications and - as much as possible - data, source code and research methods.

💻🐍 Introduction and call for contributors

Did you know? There is a new kid on the block and its name is "inteq".

@mwt has created an package for solving Volterra and Fredholm integral equations. Originally developed for , you will surely find many applications for this project.

🌟 But now it's your time to shine. @mwt is looking for contributors who know numerical analysis or best practices for python projects.

🎧 Deeper than Data
— Ben Rush

When we think about , we often hear about amazing discoveries, but rarely hear about the struggles, personal accomplishments and personalities of the scientists behind the data. On DTD, we explore the personal journeys, failures, and successes of scientists through storytelling and humor. You’ll walk away with touching stories, life lessons and feeling inspired through conversational interviews and improvised games.
