Zum Ausklang des Jahres blicken auch wir zurück auf das was uns 2017 so beschäftigte und was uns voraussichtlich 2018 beschäftigen wird. Wir danken an dieser Stelle für die Aufmerksamkeit und Treue unserer Hörer! Viel Spaß!
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).
Bianca Kramer and Jeroen Bosman are probably well-known in the Open Science scene, especially from their work on the Innovations in Scholarly Communications project. During the barcamp they presented their 1-week summer school course on Open Science and Open Scholarship and were involved in the Open Science MOOC idea initiated by Jon Tennant.
OpenUp is a Horizon 2020 funded project that seeks “to come up with a cohesive framework for the review-disseminate-assess phases of the research life cycle that is fit to support and promote Open Science.” Michela Vignoli was so nice to give us a bit of background of the project and a few of her impressions from the barcamp session on Altmetrics (a topic which is one of the main topics of OpenUp).
As last year, Konrad couldn’t resist to offer a session himself. So this year he moderated one on the issue of overlay journals, a “rising” practice to make use of articles in repositories and implement a comparatively “small” technical layer on top of it to offer editor, peer review and journal layout services. Konrad provides a bit of background and insights from his session.
The Free Software Foundation Europe recently published a “position paper for the endorsement of Free Software and Open Standards in Horizon 2020 and all publicly-funded research”. At the barcamp a couple of people from the FSFE held a session on this topic. We talked to Olga Gkotsopoulou and asked her to give us a little feedback on her session.
