Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Frontiers in Marine Science has published, Blueprints of Effective Biodiversity and Conservation Knowledge Products That Support Marine Policy. "Here, we identify seven characteristics of a selection of online biodiversity and conservation knowledge products that contribute to their ability to support policy- and decision-making in the marine realm [...]. These characteristics include: a clear policy mandate; established networks of collaborators; iterative co-design of a user-friendly interface; standardized, comprehensive and documented methods with quality assurance; consistent capacity and succession planning; accessible data and value-added products that are fit-for-purpose; and metrics of use collated and reported."
As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let us know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email Allie directly at abrown [at] openchannels.org.
Estimated cost to rent or purchase all pay-walled articles included in this issue from their respective publishers: US $698.50.
