As the amounts of research data are ever-growing and data value becomes even more important with respect to data sharing and reuse, the organization and management of data is an incredible important task. The Research Data Management Organiser (RDMO) is a tool developed to solve this task, enabling researchers to plan and manage their research data across the entire research data life cycle. Jochen Klar from the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) told us more about it at the Open Science Conference poster session.
At the poster session of this year’s Open Science Conference, Rok Roskar was presenting his poster on the data science platform RENGA. Developed by the Swiss Data Science Center, RENGA is an open-source, highly scalable platform fostering cooperation in data science. Ros was so kind to provide us with more info about the platform.
At the Open Science Conference’s poster session, Martyn Rittman (Editor at MDPI Open Access Publishers and director of preprints.org) presented a poster about his research on preprint servers. He was so kind to share his insights with us in a short interview.
Isabell Steinhardt hosted a session on the limits of transparency and the related problems. We asked her about her motivation as well as her impressions and learnings from the session.
Ingo Keck (Moringa Publishing) hosted two sessions at the Barcamp, basically looking at the two sides of doing Open Science – what are the “pain points” of doing research openly, and what is the “fun” about it? He was kind enough to share his impressions and learnings from both sessions with us.
Software is increasingly been recognized as valuable research output but there’s still a perceived lack of consistent processes for software citation. Sophia Dörner hosted a session on exactly this question to collect some community feedback. Here are her impressions and learnings from the session.
