The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has announced a Request for Applications for OER grants. They will be awarding up to 20 grants to encourage faculty to adopt, modify, redesign, or develop courses that use only open educational resources. The deadline for application is August 20th, 2018 at 5:00pm Central time.
Researchers Chris Chambers, Corin Logan, and Brad Wyble have started an initiative called Editors4BetterResearch. They hope to create a database of journal editors who support reproducibility and open science. Right now they are soliciting feedback on their proposal and collecting names of editors who would like to be listed in the database. Their goal is to allow authors who value open and reproducible science to find editors who share their values.
