Welcome to the Open Science Shop Newsletter

Hello and welcome to the Open Science Shop Newsletter!

We are excited to be launching a newsletter for the Open Science Hardware community covering all things related to running an open hardware science business. Each newsletter will focus on a specific topic or resource and will also offer opportunities for Open Science Shop members to promote their open hardware products.

We are inviting you to contribute to the Newsletter! If you are interested in contributing a post, please fill out the form below and we will get in touch. Some posts we are particularly interested in featuring include:

  • Product Posts: Tell us about your open science hardware product so we can drive more leads your way
  • Development Posts: Share about a product that is in development so we can support it when it launches
  • Educational Resources: These could be blog posts on any general topic around running an open hardware business. Could include tools for designing, documentation, tips for manufacturing, marketing, sales, customer support and more
  • Stories: Interview or write about someone in the open science hardware commercialization space; Share about how you are using open science hardware products in your work
  • Reposts: If you already have a published blog or post you think fits in the above categories, we would be interested in sharing it to the Open Science Shop community
