150 early-career researchers from six continents take part in the 2018 eLife Ambassador program

Working with eLife, Ambassadors will support the development and reach of initiatives ranging from encouraging the use of preprints to increasing the reproducibility of science, by leading conversations in their local communities, facilitating local discussions and connecting their communities with international developments                          

Collectively, eLife Ambassadors have chosen to champion ten different causes, including:

  • Career development and mentoring
  • Science communication and publishing
  • Diversity in science
  • Open access
  • Peer review
  • Preprints
  • Reproducibility and good lab practice
  • Transparency and bioethics
  • Highlighting funding opportunities
  • Open science

Three of the 150 Amassadors are affiliated with Max Planck Insitutes:

  • Vivek Bhardwaj, Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics, Germany (Interests: Preprints, reproducibility and good laboratory practice)
  • Cristiana Cruceanu, Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Munich, Germany (Interests: Career development and mentoring)
