Get involved – information sharing in the ecological community
We are looking for people to get involved by providing feedback and advice on a new project to facilitate information sharing in the ecological community. Our vision is to create an interactive online platform that allows applied ecologists - researchers and practitioners - to browse and search a wide variety of applied ecological content including grey literature reports, journal article summaries, and open access articles.
The aims of the project are:
- To improve the discoverability and preservation of ecological knowledge
- To increase the flow of information within and between academic and practitioner groups
- To promote evidence-based decision-making for issues affecting the management of biodiversity and the environment
- To identify knowledge gaps and enable practitioners to communicate their research needs
We are looking for people with a range of expertise and experience to contribute to aspects of the project including:
- Advisors or committee members to provide input on strategic direction
- Advisors and representatives of ecological organisations to explore potential partnerships
- Participants for focus groups to provide feedback during the development of the resource
- Ambassadors to promote the project through their networks
Level of time commitment is flexible, and participation could be in person or remotely by email or conference call.
