The following initiatives might be of interest to some.

The report on Reproducibility and Replicability in Science (2019) by National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine provides recommendations to researchers, academic institutions, journals, and funders on steps they can take to improve reproducibility and replicability in science. Details at  http://sites.nationalacademies.org/sites/reproducibility-in-science/index.htm

Open Science policy of the European Commission is also important. Details at


It builds upon the 2016 report on Open innovation, open science, open to the world - a vision for Europe


If there are  other Open Science related developments, please share them with me so I can learn more . Thanks.

Best wishes,

Subject: The World Science Day for Peace and Development 2019 - "Open Science, leaving no one behind"

Dear colleagues,

I wish to send greetings to everyone on The World Science Day for Peace and Development 2019 [1].

GeoForAll community has been contributing to Open Science and Open Education over many years. Details at https://www.osgeo.org/foundation-news/the-world-science-day-for-peace-and-development-2019-open-science-leaving-no-one-behind/

It is nearly 25 years ago (in 1994) that I first came across the amazing “geo world” by pure chance. I was able to learn Geospatial Science thanks to the help from many kind people who I will always be grateful for their kindness to me.   So it my duty now to help open more STEM education opportunities to all. Details at https://www.rd-alliance.org/group/geospatial-ig/post/please-share-open-principles-science-and-education-ideas-and-philosophy

I am requesting all colleagues who are part of key international scientific organisations like the International Science Council to support Open Science and use the opportunity to work for establishing dedicated Research Centres for Open Science (with focus on geoeducation ) globally, so we can provide STEM education opportunities for all.

The best gift to give is a gift of useful knowledge.

Best wishes,


Dr. Suchith Anand

Chief Scientist

Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition
