This is a short interview episode from the poster session at the Open Science Conference 2019. In this episode Bernd talks to Johanna Havemann (@johave on Twitter), a (digital) science project manager as well as trainer and consultant in (Open) Science communication. Johanna gave a presentation on open source infrastructure for region- and discipline-specific preprint repositories and presented a poster on AfricArXiv, a free preprint service for African scientists.
We met Alexander Struck who moderated a session at #oscibar about research software publishing in repositories, possible underlying use cases and required features of a registry for research software repositories. Here’s what his impressions were.
According to dictionaries „101“ refers to introductory lessons or beginners overview or tutorials. Over the course of this podcast we already have taken this approach a couple of time (e.g. on Open Access). But as technology and processes develop, might be useful to do this again from time to time. This time we want to take a brief look at the whole research cycle and try to provide a bit of information about a few general entry points for doing research more openly. This 101 is by far not exhaustive and makes no claim to be complete, but our aim was to show you some starting points from where you could dive deeper into the matter if you like. Have fun!
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.
