Data science as an entryway to open publishing

Julia Stewart Lowndes; Nicholas Tierney

These slides were presented as a Fireside Chat Discussion at the Open Publishing Festival,

The open source R programming language is a powerhouse for data analysis and statistics – and it also is fueling open publishing through RMarkdown and a large, engaged, and innovative community. We will show community-created examples of tutorials, blogs, websites, manuscripts, books, etc, and discuss how this is an entryway to open science, preprints, and open scientific publishing. We welcome other contributed examples to showcase how R can streamline open publishing, as well as examples showcasing other programming languages.
