Den meisten Menschen die sich, vor allem Deutschland, mit dem Themenkomplex Open Science beschäftigen, dürfte Lambert Heller in den letzten Jahren mehrfach über den Weg gelaufen sein. Mit seinem institutionellem Anker in der Technischen Informationsbibliothek (TIB) ist Lambert ein extrem umtriebiges und aktives Mitglied der Bibliotheksszene wie auch der Open Science Community. Von daher war es schon lange überfällig (und ebenso lange geplant), dass wir uns mal ein wenig Zeit nehmen und mit ihm über seinen Werdegang, seinen Job als Leiter des Open Science Lab an der TIB und die damit verbundenen Projekte sowie seine vielseitigen sonstigen Aktivitäten unterhalten.
Die Episode ist leider deutlich zeitversetzt zur Aufnahme veröffentlicht, daher sind alle zeitlichen Angaben relativ.
As you have recognized, Open Science Radio was again attending the Barcamp Open Science as well as the Open Science Conference. This episode is a wrap-up of the 2018 run of those two (related) events, again together with Guido Scherp, one of the organizers (you’ll know him by now). Guido is providing his impressions from the two events, we share ours and discuss a few things in general, as well as a few of the talks in more detail.
And now, have fun!
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.
Lambert Heller from TIB gave an ignition talk this morning at the Barcamp Open Science about why we should move scholarly publishing to peer-to-peer networks (Blockchain being one of the more widely known examples). He was also kind enough to give us a short overview about the reasons he (and his colleagues) identified.
March is here and this year’s Barcamp Open Science as well as the Open Science Conference is only a week away. We’re happy to attend again this year (for the fourth time) and help documenting the events with our recordings. Similar to the last years we’ve invited Guido Scherp to give us a short overview of what we can expect. We’re looking forward to meet a lot of people, exchange ideas and “drag” some of the events’ participants in front of our microphones to have them share their insights with us.
Pretty much everybody with a background in research knows PLOS, either through its mega journal PLOS ONE (most probably the biggest OA journal), or one of its other journals. However, it was kind of surprising to us when we recognized a while ago that there is also a PLOS podcast, the PLOScast. This podcast, being public for a year now, offers more than a dozen episodes so far, each being an interview with some very interesting guests – some of them well-known all over the place, such as Cameron Neylon, Matt Shipman,Geoffrey Bilder and many more. We got the wonderful opportunity to talk to Elizabeth Seiver, the host of the PLOScast (and herself being a meta researcher at PLOS with a psychology background) and Jennifer Laloup, the producer of the show. We talked about how PLOScast came to life and how they have been able to constantly grow it. We also share some of our own history and experience. We can absolutely recommend to give the PLOScast a thorough listen and we hope that there will be many more episodes to come. Hopefully, this episode is as interesting for you, as it was for us. Thanks Elizabeth and Jen! And now, enjoy!
