Last week I attended the annual COAR meeting held in Madrid and organised by DIGITAL.CSIC. It was by all accounts an exceptional event marked by two important reasons for celebration: being the first International post-pandemic face-to-face meeting and receiving a significant grant to continue the development of the Notify Project.
Some highlights from a survey asking 875 research academics living and working in Spain for their views on how important a selection of 39 different criteria should be in the evaluation of candidates’ research CVs in a recruitment process.
We announce the relaunch of Psicológica, the journal of the Spanish Society for Experimental Psychology (SEPEX), as a Diamond Open Access journal published exclusively on DIGITAL.CSIC, the institutional repository of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC).
We are exited to announce a new position for an enthusiastic and creative postdoctoral researcher interested in collaborating with our research group at the Mind, Brain and Behavior Research Center (CIMCYC) in the beautiful city of Granada.
Here are the slides of my presentation at the 2021 virtual conference organised by the Spanish Society for Experimental Psychology (SEPEX). In this invited talk I had the opportunity to present the new publication model of the society’s journal, Psicológica. A lot more to come on this project after the imminent official launch of the journal, so stay tuned!
Information about the CoVidAffect project that we launched during the Covid-19 lockdown to monitor real-time mood variations in the Spanish territory.
This past weekend I had the pleasant experience of migrating my software KARDIA form its old home at the SourceForge repository to GitHub. Although the clearest benefit from this migration is the possibility to easier collaborate with other programers for the future development of the software, there are several other sweet candies that came along…
Last month my colleague Luis Ciria and I, gave a two-day workshop that focused on how to use the Matlab toolbox eeglab to create heartbeat-evoked events, extract epochs from the continuous EEG signal based on these events, and use Fieldtrip to perform a cluster-based permutation analysis to detect statistical differences between groups and conditions. The custom scripts we used at the workshop are freely available through the Zenodo repository.
Last week I was in Ghent to give another introductory talk on Open Science —it is becoming an addiction! First, Ghent was much prettier than I expected! Second, researchers are still hesitant to open up to new practices until a clear academic reward is promised. But we are getting there, slowly but steadily…
Last week I attended the COAR (@COAR_eV) 2016 annual meeting hosted by the University of Vienna. I was invited by COAR’s executive director Kathleen Shearer to give a talk on peer review on top of repository networks and to participate in a working group that will discuss and provide recommendations for “Next Generation Repositories”.
