LeafSpring contributors, November 2016.

LeafSpring is an anonymized advice blog written by a group of scientists. But it's important to note that not all posts are written by all authors, and not all authors approve of all posts. As authors, we don't endorse all of the opinions in any response posted by the collective. Some authors have elected to make their participation in this effort public, and are listed below.

Finally, a subset of posts may be posted by individual authors. These are labeled by the author that contributed the post.

With that aside, the current set of contributors includes but is not limited to:

Dear LeafSpring,

What's the gender and racial balance among your contributors?

Dear NR,

Our contributors to date have been 60% male, 40% female and all of them are non-hispanic white.

We're in the process of adding contributors as the blog comes online, and will post an update once our core group is established.

Sincerely, LeafSpring

Ask LeafSpring

Hello, and welcome to the LeafSpring blog!

LeafSpring is an unhacker uncollective of open scientists who are on the tenure track in academia. (Some of us are tenured, some of us are not.) You'll see anonymized LeafSpring posts from the group, as well as posts from individuals.

We're using this space to discuss surviving and thriving in academia as an open scientist, with the goal of helping nudge academia towards more "open" practices.

We're starting this blog with a "Dear Abby" style column -- we're soliciting questions from current and aspiring professors on how to combine open science with a career in the research intensive professoriate. This includes how to use and highlight open science techniques to get jobs, win grants, gain tenure, and be both happy and successful.

Send your questions to leafspring.labcarpentry@gmail.com and we'll answer them here, appropriately anonymized.
