Open Access Week: Open Science Ambassadors

Open Access Week: Open Science Ambassadors

How can early career researchers boost Open Science? A joint OpenAIRE/Eurodoc webinar.

  • Thursday, 22 October 2020

During this webinar, Oleksandr Berezko (General Board Member at Eurodoc) and Sara Pilia (Equality Working Group Co-coordinator at Eurodoc) will present the Eurodoc Open Science Ambassadors training programme for Early Career Researchers (ECR), and the activities of the Eurodoc Equality Working Group, which aims to remove the barriers encountered by those ECRs who experience exclusion and discrimination. 

Eurodoc

 Eurodoc is the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers. It is an international federation of 28 national organisations of PhD candidates, and more generally of young researchers from 26 countries of the European Union and the Council of Europe. Eurodoc's mission is to advocate for positive change in the policies, culture and environment that affect the quality of training, well-being and employment conditions of early career researchers (ECRs). More information. 

Eurodoc Open Science Ambassadors

 The Eurodoc Open Science Ambassador Training is a course designed to train researchers in key practices in Open Science. The course was initially aimed at representatives of early-career researchers from National Associations of Eurodoc to act as ambassadors in their networks and is now freely available for all interested researchers and policy makers. Currently there are 24 Ambassadors located in 18 European countries from Ireland to Azerbaijan. The new Ambassadors cohort will be recruited shortly. More information.  

Eurodoc Equality Working Group 

The Eurodoc Equality Working Group was built to support every ECR in development of their career as a researcher, particularly by helping remove the barriers encountered by those ECRs that experience exclusion related to “diversity”. The Working Group adopts an approach that regards discrimination and exclusion as the result of an intersectionality of multiple causes. At present, it is paying special attention to gender and disability issues as causes of discrimination. More information
Open Access Week: Towards a scholarly commons

Open Access Week: Towards a scholarly commons

Platform interoperability and open access transformation

  • Thursday, 22 October 2020

What does it mean to be a part of the scholarly commons? According to FORCE11, the scholarly commons is an agreement among researchers and other stakeholders in scholarly communication to make research open and participatory for anyoneanywhere. It is not another sharing platform, but a set of principlesconcrete guidance to practice, and actions towards inclusivity of diverse perspectives from around the globe.

In this webinar, we investigate OpenAIRE's role in achieving this scholarly commons, through our work concerning the OpenAIRE Guidelines on metadata interoperability, as well as publication models and services for the Open Access Transformation.

Open Access Week: Public release of the OpenAIRE-DARIAH Community gateway

How to make your research more visible and more connected

  • Tuesday, 20 October 2020

A paramount challenge in present-day knowledge production is to communicate research results in ways that align with our increasingly digital and also increasingly diverse research workflows.

Research discovery platforms that have been developed from EU grants and will remain open to the public are game changers in this respect. They support the visibility and discoverability of all sorts of research outputs (datasets, software, protocols,  teaching materials etc.) to showcase a broader view of scholarship and enable a greater transparency of scholarly communication.

This webinar aims to introduce an instance of them, the OpenAIRE-DARIAH Community Gateway. Built on the top of the OpenAIRE Research Graph, the OpenAIRE Community Gateways  work as single access points to a virtual space that connects metadata descriptions of all scholarly objects that are important to the given community.

The DARIAH dashboard brings together publications and a broad range of research data (digital critical editions, plain text, archived data, audiovisual data, raw data, encoded documents, software applications, source code, images, structured graphics, databases, structured text, scientific and statistical data formats) that are hosted by DARIAH services such as NAKALA and TextGrid. As such, it significantly reduces the fragmentation of DARIAH research outputs across the web. A major benefit of such a discovery environment is that it provides scholarly communities with a single entry point to DARIAH-affiliated research outputs. This entry point, in turn, is embedded into the context of a bigger collection of Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage corpus enabling therefore arts and humanities researchers to find DARIAH outputs more easily, as an integral part of their discovery routine.

The webinar welcomes all the DARIAH communities, including humanities scholars, librarians, research support professionals, service providers and national representatives.

Open Science e COVID-19. Collaborare per contrastare la pandemia

Una serie di webinar e tutorial sulla condivisione dei dati su COVID-19

  • Tuesday, 21 July 2020
    Monday, 16 November 2020

L’emergenza sanitaria da Covid-19 ha reso evidente la necessità di collaborare a livello globale. Per trovare soluzioni rapide ed efficaci alla pandemia è doveroso condividere nel modo più aperto possibile dati, pubblicazioni, software e altre tipologie di risultati scientifici. Se ne parlerà in una serie di webinar e tutorial organizzati dai nodi italiani di OpenAIRE, ELIXIR, RDA e EOSC Pillar.

I webinar hanno l'obiettivo di sensibilizzare la comunità scientifica sull’importanza della condivisione dei dati per monitorare l’evoluzione della pandemia Covid-19 e, soprattutto, per la ricerca di una cura efficace. Saranno messe in evidenza disomogeneità e incongruenze nella raccolta dei dati molecolari, epidemiologici e clinici, per poi illustrare strumenti e buone pratiche dell’Open Science e dell’Open Access. 

I tutorial saranno eventi formativi in cui si mostreranno soluzioni specifiche per condividere diversi tipi di dati omici e altri prodotti della ricerca, quali software di analisi e protocolli.

È necessario registrarsi per partecipare e per anticipare eventuali domande ai relatori. Il link per la registrazione si trova di seguito, sotto ciascun incontro.

Webinar: Covid-19 e condivisione dei dati. Il problema dei dati epidemiologici

Data da definire.

Come aggiornare il dato dei nuovi contagi da Covid-19 se le regioni non seguono protocolli uniformi nella somministrazione dei test diagnostici? Siamo di fronte all’assenza di un sistema di monitoraggio univoco tra le regioni. Il webinar vuole essere occasione di confronto e discussione, a partire da alcune delle incongruenze emerse nelle raccolta e gestione dei dati epidemiologici.

Relatori e programma: da definire.

Webinar: Covid-19 e condivisione dei dati. Risorse e strumenti per i dati clinici.

Data da definire

Come sarebbe opportuno procedere per standardizzare la raccolta e la gestione dei dati clinici sull’epidemia da Covid-19, in modo da rendere più efficace il monitoraggio e dunque le politiche sanitarie pubbliche? In questo webinar si mostreranno alcune incongruenze nella raccolta dei dati clinici e si mostreranno i protocolli e le linee guida proposte  dall’Organizzazione mondiale della sanità, dal COVID19 data portal della Commissione europea e le raccomandazioni della Research Data Alliance.

Relatori e programma: da definire.

Tutorial: Covid-19 e condivisione dei dati. Come gestire i dati omici - prima e seconda parte

Date da definire

Due tutorial saranno dedicati ai diversi tipi di dati “omici” rilevanti per lo studio e l’analisi di SARS-CoV-2 (e.g.: virus/host genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, structural data) e per ciascuno di essi saranno mostrati:

  • i vantaggi della condivisione dei dati
  • raccomandazioni/linee-guida/procedure per il processamento e la condivisione dei dati in archivi pubblici
  • come rendere i dati FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable)
  • sfide e aspetti da tenere in considerazione

Relatori e programma: da definire.

Tutorial: Covid-19 e condivisione del software. Protocolli e altri strumenti per l’analisi di dati.

Data da definire

La ricerca scientifica è spesso possibile grazie ai vari software di analisi dei dati. Questi, tuttavia, non sempre sono sviluppati, manutenuti e condivisi in modo da assicurare qualità e riproducibilità. In questo tutorial saranno esposti in modo pratico e concreto best practices e linee guida per applicare i principi dell’Open Science ai vari strumenti per l’analisi dei dati. 

Relatori e programma: da definire.
