By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
OpenAIRE Research Graph Consultation
OpenAIRE is pleased to announce the beta release of its Research Graph, a massive collection of metadata and links between scientific products such as articles, datasets, software, and other research products, entities like organisations, funders, funding streams, projects, communities, and data sources. Due to its coverage and cross-discipline nature, the Research Graph will empower the EOSC catalogue of scientific products.
On January 30th, 2020, OpenAIRE is organizing its final webinar in the first consultation series.
UPDATE: there will be a follow-up consultation in Spring 2020, stay tuned!
Open Data, Open Science and Research Results Exploitation
This OpenAIRE and EOSC-hub webinar covers Horizon 2020 rules and good practices approaches to addressing Open Data, Open Science and research results exploitation in Consortium Agreements and in Data Management Plans. It also specifically covers the issues of concern between Open Science and exploitation (patents, spin offs/ outs, confidentiality), business planning and licensing strategies.
Date: Friday, 29 November at 2:00pm CET
This webinar is organised in collaboration with EOSC-Hub
The webinar will give the opportunity for discussions and questions regarding the new developments.
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.
This webinar is organised in collaboration with Open Science MOOC
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.
This webinar is organised in collaboration with EOSC-Hub
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.
The integration of OpenAIRE’s services and network into EOSC is priority. For us to understand better how OpenAIRE is involved in this new research environment, both at project and national level, we propose a webinar to discuss these issues. Aim: Answer your questions about EOSC. National level involvement. Present the status of EOSC, the Governance model, the Secretariat and the working groups.
The webinar is internal for OpenAIRE NOADs and consortium partners.
Take aways: Pointers for how you at national level can be involved in EOSC
When: June 5th at 13-14 CEST. The meeting will last one hour. You are more than welcome to send questions beforehand via the registration form.
Are you developing an open science policy in your organization? Do you need extra support to align it to other policies, or information on legal issues on research data such as licensing and copyright issues?
OpenAIRE is offering a series of webinars targeting Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) that explore policy and legal issues around Open Science/ Open Access. The aim of the webinars is to support RPOs and RFOs in developing and/or aligning their Open Science policies by discussing the elements that a policy should include and legal issues that should be taken into consideration, and presenting the ways in which OpenAIRE can support them in their work through the NOAD network.
The first one-hour webinar will take place on May 20th, 2019 at 13h CEST and targets stakeholders (from research organisations, funders and ministries) interested in open science policies. The webinar will present the policy templates developed by the OpenAIRE project, followed by examples of practical implementation. The webinar will also focus on how to approach licensing issues in the context of open science policies supported by best practice examples.
This webinar is aimed at: research institutions, research support staff, librarians, policy makers, ministries and funders
