Join OpenAIRE for a series of webinars (and more) during Open Access Week 2019!

The 2019 International Open Access Week will be held October 21-27, 2019. This year’s theme, “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge,” builds on the groundwork laid during last year’s focus of “Designing Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge.”
As has become a yearly habit, OpenAIRE will organise a series of webinars during this week, highlighting OpenAIRE activities, services and tools and reaching out to the wider community with relevant talks. 

On the programme this year:


  Date Time Title Presenter(s)  
  Monday October 21st       11 AM CEST     OpenAPC - cost transparency of Open Access publishing      Christoph Broschinski and
Andreas Czerniak (UNIBI) 
  Monday October 21st       02 PM CEST   Research Data Management   S. Venkataraman (DCC) and

............ Tuesday October 22nd    .... 10 AM CEST .... Horizon 2020 Open Science Policies and beyond .... 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 ECs 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.

  Friday October 25th   11 AM CEST   Plan S compliance for Open Access Journals -
what we know so far and where we think we're heading
  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. 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.      
  Friday October 25th   02 PM CEST   From Open Science to Inclusive Science    Paola Masuzzo  
          Speaking of Openess, 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.
