Early-career researchers make up a large proportion of the scientific workforce. Therefore, they can have immense power when it comes to improving the research culture in their immediate research niche or institutions. In this webinar from eLIFE, panellists discussed how early-career researchers can influence and improve the quality of research as well as the way research is performed at their institutions.
eLife is a non-profit organisation created by funders and led by researchers. Their mission is to accelerate discovery by operating a platform for research communication that encourages and recognises the most responsible behaviours.
eLIFE works across three major areas:
- Publishing – eLife aims to publish work of the highest standards and importance in all areas of biology and medicine, while exploring creative new ways to improve how research is assessed and published.
- Technology – eLife invests in open-source technology innovation to modernise the infrastructure for science publishing and improve online tools for sharing, using and interacting with new results.
- Research culture – eLife is committed to working with the worldwide research community to promote responsible behaviours in research.
