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!
Isabell Steinhardt hosted a session on the limits of transparency and the related problems. We asked her about her motivation as well as her impressions and learnings from the session.
Ingo Keck (Moringa Publishing) hosted two sessions at the Barcamp, basically looking at the two sides of doing Open Science – what are the “pain points” of doing research openly, and what is the “fun” about it? He was kind enough to share his impressions and learnings from both sessions with us.
Software is increasingly been recognized as valuable research output but there’s still a perceived lack of consistent processes for software citation. Sophia Dörner hosted a session on exactly this question to collect some community feedback. Here are her impressions and learnings from the session.
Claudia Göbel (European Citizen Science Association) hosted a session on Citizen Science and opening even more to doing research with people from outside academia. Link to the session pad.
Gabriela Mejias and Christian Pietsch moderated a session on ORCID (the Open Researcher and Contributor ID) and how to use the BASE search engine to get scientists’ publications into ORCID.
