I am requesting funding for an open source book publication: Experimental Design and Reproducibility in Preclinical Studies. This is part of an Open Source Book Series in Laboratory Animal Science and Medicine. The purpose of the Open Source Book Series is to promote best practice within the field of Laboratory Animal Science and Medicine, and to share worldwide this information so scientists, students and technical staff working in countries with difficulties accessing this type of publications can have an open source reference. This series aim to have a number of published books related to the field of laboratory animal science and medicine with a very practical approach so to facilitate the day-to-day work of the scientists, students and technical staff working with laboratory animals.
