Open Science in Kenya: Where are we?

« Open, collaborative, and reproducible research – Open Science – has great potential for advancing science. However, the training in our local universities does not equip students with the tools to practice open science. Additionally, to work in the open and collaborate, the collaborators should be trained to use shared tools. Therefore, the main barrier to working open is the lack of awareness of the collaboration tools and the skills required to utilize these tools. Thus, to fill the gap, through an open science community funded by a Mozilla Mini-grant, OpenScienceKE, we are promoting open science among bioinformatics students and researchers in the Nairobi area using this model: sensitize, train, hack and collaborate..
