Over the last couple of years, a number of people at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich have relentlessly (in a good way) been pushing open science efforts. Be it in the form of incorporating open science badges, signing open initiatives, or the foundation of an Open Science Committee at LMU, there has been a lot of activity in a very desireable direction.
These activities have finally led to an even more manifest joint effort, the foundation of the Open Science Center at LMU. We had the great pleasure to talk to Anne-Laure Boulesteix and Felix Schönbrodt about how the foundation came about, its self-conception, its mission and the services it can offer to researchers at the LMU and maybe even beyond.
If you’ve been listening to us for a while you have probably already heard about Felix Schönbrodt, as we have mentioned him in a number of episodes talking about projects he was involved in and a number of talks, e.g. his lighting talk at the 2016 Barcamp Science 2.0 or his recent talk at the Open Science Conference 2018. Felix is a principal investigator for Psychological Methods and Assessment at the Department of Psychology, and moreover, he is an absolute Open Science enthusiast.
As we mentioned in our wrap-up episode for this year’s Barcamp Open Science and Open Science Conference, we found Felix’s conference talk really insightful, so it is our pleasure to provide it to you with kind permission from Felix and hope that you find it equally enlightening and motivating.
If you wanna closely follow his presentation including his slides, please use the video embedded into the blogpost for this episode or his slides linked in they the Open Science Conference programme.
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!
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.
Open Science Radio is happy to attend this year’s Barcamp Open Science as well as the Open Science Conference. As in 2016 we’ve been kindly ask to participate and help documenting the events with our recordings. In order to provide you with a bit of background about this two events and this year’s focus, we’ve invited one of the organizers, Guido Scherp, to give us a rundown what we can expect. Especially with the Barcamp probably becoming more international this year, we are absolutely looking forward to meet some interesting people their and we would be glad to meet some of you there too. Registrations are still open, and hopefully this episode can give you some reason to attend too! Enjoy!
Update: in between yesterday’s recording and today’s publishing of this episode, the conference sold out!
Wir hatten uns ein paar Tage vor Weihnachten noch einmal zusammengefunden um einen Blick auf die letzten Meldungen des Jahres zu werfen, ein bißchen Dank zu verteilen und damit so etwas wie eine „Abschlußfolge“ für das Jahr 2016 aufzunehmen. Haben wir auch gemacht, aber leider hat die Gesundheit der Veröffentlichung einen Strich durch die Rechnung gemacht. Wir hoffen also Ihr hattet ein paar geruhsame Weihnachtstage und seid gut in das neue Jahr gekommen! Wir danken Euch für Eure Aufmerksamkeit und Unterstützung und freuen uns auf das neue Jahr, an dieser Stelle geht es natürlich weiter. Zunächst aber einmal viel Spaß bei dieser Episode.
