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.
Claudia Göbel (European Citizen Science Association) hosted a session on Citizen Science and opening even more to doing research with people from outside academia. Link to the session pad.
Gabriela Mejias and Christian Pietsch moderated a session on ORCID (the Open Researcher and Contributor ID) and how to use the BASE search engine to get scientists’ publications into ORCID.
Lambert Heller (TIB) and Wolfgang Böttner (De Gruyter, OA journals for Societies) moderated a session on moving from traditional platforms to peer-to-peer networks as a basis for academic publishing. After the session they were so kind to share with us their impressions and main discussion points from the session.
Daniel Mietchen hosted another session at yesterday’s Open Science Barcamp, specifically looking at potential valid reasons for opting out of sharing scientific work openly. We asked him to share his impressions and insights with us.
