By providing one webinar for every day of the week
We are thrilled to join forces with open access organizations for a week of open science immersion! We have prepared one webinar for every day between 24-28 October touching upon a wide range of topics, specifically focussing on OpenAIRE actions take us all on step further in Open Access and Open Science: Open Science primer, Open Repositories, Research Data, policies and information for researchers and project coordinators.
Zenodo, the collaborative OpenAIRE-CERN open repository for all scientific output, has just been relaunched with new and improved features. More data, more space, improved integration and automatic linking are just some of the updates the Zenodo team have in store for you.
The view from the Coalition of OA Repositories
Kathleen Shearer, the executive director of COAR, published a response to an article written by Richard Poynder on September 22, 2016. Although some of Richard Poynder’s comments definitely reflect the current reality, he made a number of other somewhat questionable assertions, in particular that institutional repositories (IRs) have failed. Poynder’s comments possibly reflect a misleading narrative entering into the dialogue about Open Access.
OpenMinTeD: Exploring TDM Licensing in practice
Even if researchers can lawfully access and read scientific material, for instance publications through their university library, copying a substantial part of works may infringe copyright in those works. This constitutes a major problem when it comes to Text and Data Mining (TDM). Thomas Margoni from University of Glasgow discusses the challenges we face and how these are addressed in OpenMinTeD, an EU-funded project, that builds bridges between legally accessible content and TDM services.
New methods, indicators and tools in the scope of Open Science
The recently EU-funded project OpenUP aspires to come up with a cohesive framework for the review-disseminate-assess phases of the research fit to support and promote Open Science. This comes in a very timely manner with EU’s European Open Science Cloud initiative, as OpenUP’s efforts will lead to policy recommendations for the EU and organizations across Europe. A very enthusiastic consortium will roll out seven pilots which will analyze and evaluate emerging mechanims and how these are perceived by different stakeholders within (open) scholarly communication.
Infrastructure and Networking for Open Science
The Finnish national OpenAIRE workshop in the end of August 2016 underlined for one more time Finland’s commitment to Open Science. The event painted a broad picture of the current scene of Open Science starting from the European level down to local university level developments, focussing on the importance of infrastructures and the human support.
An overview of OpenAIRE activities to explore quality, openness and transparency
OpenAIRE is involved in numerous activities and events to aid and move forward the different aspects of Open Science. Among them we are investigating Open Peer Review through surveys, experiments and workshops. View a summary of our activities and parcicipate in our ongoing survey.
