In this episode we had the great opportunity to talk to Jon Tennant, a fairly well-known Open Science advocate with many hats and even more projects. We talked to him about what drove him to Open Science, how it came about that he wore some of these hats and about his most recent (and community-driven) project, the Open Science MOOC. Jon has a thing with dinosaurs – be it the extinct species or legacy publishers in the academic world. And one thing became clear: he’s doing something about it.
As you have recognized, Open Science Radio was attending this year’s Barcamp Open Science as well as the Open Science Conference. This episode is a wrap-up 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 (this year we caught a few quotes).
