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.

Webinar in Portuguese
Athena Research Center, the Hellenic Academic Libraries Link and the University of Cyprus Library, being the National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus respectively, are organising yet another webinar on Open Science, this time focused on the General Data Protection Regulation and scientific data.
OpenAIRE Webinar: Open Science and Personal Data: applying the General Data Protection Regulation in today's digital science
With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in force from May 2018, the purpose of the webinar is to inform Greek and Cypriot researchers on how to comply with it by adapting to behaviours for proper management of research data that are particularly of personal or sensitive interest. The webinar aims to provide examples of best GDPR compliant practices in a research lifecycle as well as to give advice to everyday issues that researchers are facing on this matter.

During this webinar, Prodromos Tsiavos and Thomas Margoni take you through this guides and answer questions (pre-submited during registration and asked live during the webinar Q&A).
The first guide is called 'How do I know if my research data is protected?' and teach you about research data and their protection by intellectual property rights. If you want to know more about what types of data are protected by copyright, learn about Sui Generis Database Rights and their influence on your research - this guide is for you. You can access it here: https://www.openaire.eu/how-do-i-know-if-my-research-data-is-protected
A second guide deals with research data licensing. What licenses should you use if you want to make your research data as open as possible? What is the meaning of different Creative Commons licenses and what are the consequences if you apply them to your research data? What licenses should be avoided? Does OpenAIRE make any specific recommendations? You can access the guide here: https://www.openaire.eu/how-do-i-license-my-research-data
Our third guide answers all your questions you might have about reusing someone else's research data. What data can you reuse, how to interpret copyright licenses, how to combine different datasets? Access the guide here: https://www.openaire.eu/can-i-reuse-someone-else-research-data
