  • Since several years Daniel Mietchen has been a practitioner and advocate of Open Science. Due to this I endorse him to represent the Open Science community. --Konrad Foerstner (talk) 11:40, 18 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I think Daniel Mietchen would be an excellent representative of OKFN at the European Open Science Policy Platform. As somebody working in academic library IT, I found him easily approachable when I needed advice in open science matters, and he was eager to introduce me to the open knowledge community. Disclosure: We recently launched an Open Science Q&A site together. --ChPietsch (talk) 12:17, 18 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Happy to endorse Daniel for this role. He is an ideal candidate, with both an understanding and in-depth experience of (not to mention a passion for) Open Science. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:20, 18 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • With confidence, I'd like to endorse Daniel Mietchen's application that would make an excellent choice for the High-Level Advisory Group 'Open Science Policy Platform', coping all five points the OSPP's mandate is about. Daniel Mietchen has impressively shown his engagement in openData and Open Science and with his envolvement in the Wikimedia movement he has shown all the qualities required for becoming a member of that group. For the past 5 years I've been mainly a consumer of Open Science [mostly] (and not so open science [unfortunately]) and am tramendously pleased to learn that the EU commission has launched a programme to estalish a Commission Expert Group. -- Rillke (talk) 13:36, 18 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I am very confident to support Daniel’s application for the OSPP. Daniel has been an intense driver of the work on and dissemination of the open science principles over the last years, participating and initiating quite a number of projects. With his deep understanding, wide experience and established network within the open science community I am sure that he can make a valuable contribution to the expert group. -- Matthias Fromm 16:28, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
  • As a researcher at the French National Institute for Agronomic Research (INRA), I endorse Daniel's candidature. In my view, and I also feel I can speak for colleagues who are familiarized with his work, he is one of the most capable people to join this commission, being knowledgeable and experienced in the issues, practices and policies related to open science. --Solstag (talk) 16:01, 18 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I'm sure Daniel's contribution will be an asset to the EC. Nemo 16:52, 18 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I have known Daniel for many years now and fullheartedly endorse Daniels candidacy. He is an experienced natural scientist as well as an open science entrepreneur (with the RIO Journal), a thoughtful thinker, and very knowledgable about Open Data, Open Science, and Wikipedia. He is also an excellent collaborator and highly suited for the position. --G.Hagedorn (talk) 21:20, 18 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I cannot comment on Daniel's professional aspects, I can, however, comment upon his passion, interest and especially the advocacy role and implementation of openly sharing knowledge. Daniel, and his colleagues, in 2014 took a broad Wikimedia approach to sharing open science across the multiple properties (the multimedia, the library and the encyclopaedia). He approached the Wikisource community with his plan to import editions of articles that were referenced within Wikipedia. This enabled the ultimate of data becoming information feeding into knowledge. If you want a practical person who is able to bridge the gap of the strategy and the operations, then Daniel should be given due consideration for his rare ability to collaboratively implement successfully.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:58, 18 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I've been a Wikipedia editor for ten years and am on the board of Wiki Project Med with Daniel. He is an intelligent, articulate, informed advocate for open science and no one understands Wikipedia/Wikimedia's place and potential roles in that movement better than he does. I unreservedly endorse his candidacy. --Anthonyhcole (talk) 02:51, 19 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I endorse the candidature of Daniel Mietchen. He has been an active and constructive Open Science advocate in the past, and I would like to see his views represented at the EU level. Konrad Hinsen 09:01, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
  • I endorse Daniel Mietchen as representative of the Open Science community in the Open Science Policy Platform advisory group --Frankhellwig / @frankhellwig
  • As Biotechnology teacher and former Chief Science Officer of the Swiss Wikimedia Chapter I endorse the candidature of Daniel MietchenChandres 14:24, 20 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • As a researcher in Science & Technology Studies and leader of a research group on Open Science and Innovation I endorse the candidature of Daniel Mietchen. Eduard Aibar 18:54, 20 March 2016‎ (UTC)
  • As an Open Access digital librarian and wikipedian, who has worked on the matter for years, I endorse Daniel: he's been a great advocate of open science inside and outside Wikimedia projects, and his contribution to the open knowledge cause is immense. I strongly support him. Aubrey (talk) 09:09, 21 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Wikipedia is the world's single most consulted science information source and more than any other single person, Daniel Mietchen has been its champion in the realm of open science and for science generally. I take it for granted that Daniel's publishing practices have made him the most requested, published, accessed, and consulted science editor in the world based on audience size and the number of views the Wikipedia articles containing his contributions have received. I have collaborated with him since 2010 in the development of science content on Wikipedia. His support led me to seek employment with an American nonprofit organization in a role in which I train others to develop Wikipedia's medical information, and I have been doing that since 2012 with open science on my mind greatly because of him. Wikipedia is the only nonprofit organization to operate in the space of the world's biggest media houses and even among the giants, Wikipedia out-competes its peers in international reach, scope of content, public engagement, and by simple count of audience and pageviews. If Daniel sees fit to serve with the European Commission Open Science Policy Platform then that organization would be lucky to have him. Not only is he dependable to assess the merit of digital publishing ideas, but also he can be trusted as well as anyone to be able to predict trends for the future in this space. Other people might have made bigger impacts in science among scientists, but I think were it not for Daniel, the massive amount of science content which he has delivered to the general public would not have been delivered in these past few years.

  • I know Daniel Mietchen from several open scholarship projects, and wholeheartedly endorse his candidacy for the OSPP. His extensive experience with, and expertise in, the use of wikis as both sources and users of open scholarship give him a unique and valuable perspective. --Mike Taylor (talk) 16:04, 21 March 2016 (GMT)
  • Wikimedia Italia endorses Daniel's candidature. We appreciate the passion and commitment of Daniel in bridging the Wikimedia and OA worlds. - Laurentius (talk) 21:42, 21 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Open Science Foundation supports Daniel's application for Open Science Policy Platform. Pawel Szczesny, President of Open Science Foundation
  • Daniel Mietchen played a key role in sustaining and extending the OA movements toward new reciprocical collaborations with contributive communities (the crowdsourced proposal Wikidata for research comes first in my mind). As a French researcher, longtime Wikipedia contributor and OA activist, I fully endorse his devotion to develop a wider open knowledge ecosystem, where the stake is not only to reuse amators' contributions for scientific purposes but establish a virtuous feedback within the knowledge commons. Alexander Doria (talk) 11:16, 23 March 2016 (UTC) / Pierre-Carl LanglaisReply[reply]
  • I worked with Daniel on several projects while running PLOS Labs, an innovation incubator at the Public Library of Science. Our work included creation of the data for bibliomentric source identifiers in Wikidata, and more recently a collaboration on citations systems. I fully endorse Daniel for the European Commission Open Science Policy Platform and would be happy to write a letter of support. Jmdugan (talk) 21:37, 24 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
