the error bar says

this week's twitter storm in a news teacup involved a website and a project called Curate Science

what seems to have started as a well-regarded EU-funded 2-year fellowship project at the Katholieke Universiteit in Leuven, Belgium, has turned into a what is now widely-regarded by the twitterati as a naming-and-shaming leaderboard run by a rogue lone researcher

conclusion? open science needs to be much more open and much less crap than that

a tunnel into the twitter rabbit hole is provided on our website


conclusion

keep calm and carry on
