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.
At the poster session of this year’s Open Science Conference, Rok Roskar was presenting his poster on the data science platform RENGA. Developed by the Swiss Data Science Center, RENGA is an open-source, highly scalable platform fostering cooperation in data science. Ros was so kind to provide us with more info about the platform.
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.
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.
