The Open Science Project è un progetto curato da un team di scienziati, ingegneri e matematici che scrivono software scientifico Open source
Much of the work of science depends on having appropriate tools available to analyze experimental data and to interract with theoretical models. Powerful computers are now cheap enough so that significant processing power is within reach of many people. The missing piece of the puzzle is software that lets the scientist choose between models and make sense of his or her observations. That is where the OpenScience project can help.
I software disponibili sono elencati qui http://www.openscience.org/links/
Tra i progetti segnaliamo
- OOPSE, an open implementation of a force-field based molecular dynamics program for use in chemical and biochemical simulations.
- Jmol, an Open Source Java/Swing based molecular dynamics viewer.
- JChemPaint, an Open Source Java/Swing based molecular structure editor.
- LinkWeaver, an Open Source collection of shell scripts, html, and PHP3 files for managing hierarchical trees of links.
Segnaliamo inoltre le sezioni: Acoustics, Neural Networks, Chemistry, Engineering, Bioinformatics, Medical sciences, Statistics, Fluid Dynamics, la sezione dedicata all’open access come modello alternativo di pubblicazione
