Profile photo of Andrew Holding

Dr Andrew HoldingAssistant Professor in Biomedical Science (Biology)I am a Cancer Biologist, and our research uses high-throughput sequencing and public genomic data. The field has embraced publishing data in online databases like GEO and PRIDE, supported by Preprints on BioRxiv to make papers more available.

Our next steps are to support everyone to publish all code alongside their papers. Currently, there is a reluctance of many researchers to include code; however, this is necessary to reproduce results. We, therefore, need to reassure researchers at the University of York that the code doesn't need to look beautiful to be published, and that publishing it is vital to open science.

Dr Chris MacDonald

Research Fellow / Lecturer (Biology)

I have been an advocate for Open Access (OA) research since starting my lab in 2017. All research from my lab is made available via pre-print servers when articles are originally submitted to a journal, and this version is updated following reviewer requested changes as part of our resubmission process.

As a Wellcome Trust funded researcher I have OA obligations that have been met through various mechanisms. These include:

1.    Using OA agreements between the University of York and publishing organisations, such as the Company of Biologists and Wiley.
2.    Securing funds to release embargoed manuscripts accepted by society journals, such as the Biochemical Society and the American Society of Cell Biology, at time of publication.
3.    Receiving OA block grant funds coordinated by the University of York library team, either as an investigator on Wellcome Trust or UKRI grants, to pay for OA publishing costs.
4.    Uploading and processing author approved manuscripts to Europe PubMed Central at time of journal publication.

I have experienced many barriers to OA and would be happy to discuss strategies me and the library team have used to successfully navigate such issues.

Dr Nathalie NoretLecturer in Mental Health and Wellbeing (Education)My research focuses on young peoples' experiences of bullying in school and the relationship between experiencing bullying and poor mental health. As part of my research, I have an interest in adopting and advocating for open research practices. I have experience in openly sharing data, and pre-registering studies and have written on the benefits of open science for bullying research.
