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!
Lambert Heller (TIB) and Wolfgang Böttner (De Gruyter, OA journals for Societies) moderated a session on moving from traditional platforms to peer-to-peer networks as a basis for academic publishing. After the session they were so kind to share with us their impressions and main discussion points from the session.
Lambert Heller from TIB gave an ignition talk this morning at the Barcamp Open Science about why we should move scholarly publishing to peer-to-peer networks (Blockchain being one of the more widely known examples). He was also kind enough to give us a short overview about the reasons he (and his colleagues) identified.
