This episode was recorded at the Barcamp Open Science 2020 in Berlin but is not a summary of a session. Instead you can look forward to a deeper discussion with Marie Farge in which she presents her vision of the scholarly publishing system. In the suggested szenario, journals are owned by their editorial boards and are running on publicly funded infrastructure (classic platinum Open Access) which ensure proper peer-review by the community of a field. She also elaborates the important role of commercial publisher which should run multidisciplinary journals for the popularisation of science and the translation of new findings to a broader public.
Many of the ideas discussed are described in the chapter Marie contributed to the European Commission’s publication Europe’s Future: Open Science, Open Innovation, and Open to the World (edited by Carlos Moedas). A PDF-version of her chapter is publically available.
This is another episode from our coverage of the Barcamp Open Science. In this episode Konrad talked with Marie Farge about her session on the publishing model of Diamond Open Access and the Open Access tool Dissemin.

This is a short interview episode from the poster session at the Open Science Conference 2019. In this episode Bernd talks to Johanna Havemann (@johave on Twitter), a (digital) science project manager as well as trainer and consultant in (Open) Science communication. Johanna gave a presentation on open source infrastructure for region- and discipline-specific preprint repositories and presented a poster on AfricArXiv, a free preprint service for African scientists.
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.
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.
