What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research

I graduated from the National Science Library, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and now I’m a librarian of Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Sciences. My major was information science and I’ve been studying open science and open access about 10 years. Now I’ve published 6 papers as the first author on open science and open access and data management.

Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?

We have established a preprint server on pharmaceutical science in 2023 and I’m one of the managers of the preprint server. So, I want to learn more about preprints and preprint servers, especially how to manage the server to support the pharmaceutical study and scholarly communication. Besides, I believe I can get to know a few motivated and distinguished scholars in life sciences, so I chose to participate in the program.

What are you excited about in science communication?

I have one apple and you have one apple and If we exchange, we still only have one apple. I have one point of view, you have one point of view, and we have two points of view after our exchange. I believe science communication can push the advance in science and we have many kinds of science communication nowadays. But, many scholars in pharmaceutical science aren’t willing to publish preprints and I hope through our in-depth explanation and promotion in the future, scientists of our institute or in pharmaceutical science may actually benefit from preprints and preprint servers and they may embrace preprints and preprint servers from the bottom of their hearts. I would feel quite excited at that time.
