From Open Science to Inclusive Science with Paola Masuzzo
Friday, Oct 25, 2019 from 2pm to 3pm (CEST)
A lot is happening in the Open Science world, as everybody realizes more and more the importance of open, transparent and participatory research practices.
However, we tend to forget, in the ongoing conversations, what Open Science means to different audiences, coming from diverse or even underrepresented backgrounds.
In this webinar, we will be talking about Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Inclusiveness.
Masuzzo will make the case that these are non-negotiable and they must be built into the foundation of what we are all trying to achieve in the ongoing efforts of democratizing knowledge.

Plan S compliance for Open Access Journals - what we know so far and where we think we're heading by Dominic Mitchell (DOAJ)
In September 2018 when cOAlition S put out their Plan S for making Open Access an immediate reality, there was concern about how journals would become compliant in the short time available and what exactly was required to do that. The guidance mentioned that being indexed in DOAJ is necessary but that is only one criteria of many. There are other, new criteria which are additional to the DOAJ ones. DOAJ, among others, is mentioned as a key player in the certification process so the DOAJ Team have looked very carefully at what is being asked. One of the problems is that the exact data to be captured for those requirements have not yet been set and work by cOAlition S to do that is only slated to start imminently. In this presentation, I will explain what those extra Plan S criteria might be and how we think that they might be measured and captured. I will explain how we think the certification process, at least at DOAJ, might go and what the difference is between DOAJ certification and Plan S certification.
Horizon 2020 Open Science Policies and beyond by Emilie Hermans (OpenAIRE)
The global shift towards making research findings available free of charge and sharing and opening up the research process, so-called 'Open Science’, has been a core strategy in the European Commission to improve knowledge circulation and innovation.
It is illustrated in particular by the Open Science policies for the EC's framework programme. This webinar will talk about the OS policies for open access to scientific publications and the pilot for research data in Horizon 2020, followed by a preview of what to expect for Open Science in the new Horizon Europe programme.
An overview of the polices will be followed by ample time for questions in this "Ask me Anything" session.
Research Data Management and Legal issues related to research data by S. Venkataraman (DCC) and Thomas Margoni (CREATe)
In this 'double bill' webinar, we first hear about the basic principles of Research Data Management, explained by S. Venkataraman from Digital Curation Centre (DCC). Participants are pointed to essential tools and standards, as well as a number of good practices related to RDM and data management planning.
In the second part of the webinar, Thomas Margoni from CREATe illustrates the legal framework around the complex issue of data ownership and will try to explain in non legal terms what the law says, what researchers need to know, what is the role of Open Science principles in this area, and what kind of supporting material OpenAIRE has produced to assist researchers.

OpenAPC - cost transparency of Open Access publishing by Christoph Broschinski and Andreas Czerniak (UNIBI)
In 2014 the OpenAPC project was established at Bielefeld University Library and has been funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) (2015 - 2018) and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) (2018 - 2020).
In this webinar we focus on how institutions can become part of the OpenAPC project. We briefly discuss the data format and processing and how the concept of transparency is applied to all steps of the data lifecycle in OpenAPC.
In addition, we also focus on benefits for participating institutions. Finally, the re-use of OpenAPC data in other projects is shown, in particular the integration of the OpenAPC data set into the OpenAIRE research graph.
This webinar presents how the OpenAIRE-Connect project is building the community gateway to Open Science, their motivations, how it works, focusing on the new developments in the Research Community Gateway, and how Research Managers can manage and personalize their community gateway.
Athena Research Center (ARC), the Hellenic Academic Libraries Link (HEAL-Link) and the University of Cyprus Library, being the National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus respectively, are organising a webinar on Open Software in Research as part of their “Open Science webinar series”.
Four Good Practices for Software Development in Open Science
When: Thursday 6 June 2019
Time: 11.00-12.00 EEST
Language of the presentation: Greek
The OpenAIRE team is pleased to welcome guest speaker, Dr Fotis Psomopoulos, bioinformatician and Principal Investigator C' at the Institute of Applied Biosciences (INAB), Center for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH) to present ELIXIR’s set of principles for software development in open research environments.
The webinar will be about good practices for developing Open Software, which has gained particular attention along with Big Data, and is now an integral part of Science, with a distinctive example of Life Sciences. Recognizing this important role, ELIXIR as the Pan-European Network of Excellence in Bioinformatics, created a working group aiming at specifying good practices for software development, in line with the Open Science principles. During the presentation, the four key practices and their implementation will be presented in a realistic scenario, followed by a discussion about next steps planned in that direction.
