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!
OpenAIRE supports the European Commission’s Open Data Pilot. At the Open Science Conference poster session, Ellen Leenarts from OpenAIRE-Advance gave us a bit more insight in their survey about how the data management plan requirements in H2020 (PDF) are perceived by researchers and research supporters.
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.
According to dictionaries “101” refers to introductory lessons or beginners overview or tutorials. Over the course of this podcast we already have taken this approach a couple of time (e.g. on Open Access). But as technology and processes develop, might be useful to do this again from time to time. This time we want to take a brief look at the whole research cycle and try to provide a bit of information about a few general entry points for doing research more openly. This 101 is by far not exhaustive and makes no claim to be complete, but our aim was to show you some starting points from where you could dive deeper into the matter if you like. Have fun!
Es hat nur knapp über 5 Jahre gedauert bis wir die 100 vollgemacht haben. Vielen Dank an alle die uns in dieser Zeit unterstützt haben! Aber es gibt noch immer viel Redebedarf. Wir wühlen etwas im Motorraum des Open Science Radio, betreiben Datensatzleserei und blicken zurück. Viel Spaß!
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. Academic publishing that is. And actually not only in Denmark. Even though open access publishing has picked up quite a bit over the last years, academic publishing today is still rather dominated by legacy publishers who mainly play their old game without much signs of changing and adapting to current technological and scientific developments. In fact, many of them are not even showing much willingness to consider changing. A lot of the recent studies and arguments point out that a complete transition to open access publishing potentially yields many positive social effects for the academic system and society as a whole, and even might achieved quite substantial savings. We had the great opportunity to talk Björn Brembs about these points, the obstacles, the necessary steps and a vision of how a publishing infrastructure could look like.
We apologize for the less optimal audio quality and hope you’re still enjoying the conversation. Have fun!
