The National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus are organising a webinar on Citizen Science in Education. This webinar will be the last of the second series of these collaborative OpenAIRE webinars.
OpenAIRE Webinar “Citizen Science in Education: Students as researchers who analyze, study, present and publish data”
When: Monday 16 December 2019
Time: 11.00am - 12.00pm
Language of the presentation: Greek
The OpenAIRE team is happy to welcome as guest speaker to provide information on Citizen Science in Education, Evgenia Kypriotis, a member of the Research and Development Department of Ellinogermaniki Agogi.
During this webinar, Evgenia will talk about the main categories of citizen science projects in education, highlight good practices and inform about the OpenAIRE Citizen Science activity of the Open Schools Journal for Open Science.
For years, it was thought that the link between schools and society conceals the essence of learning. In the 21st century, new and exciting opportunities of new technologies, social networking platforms, smartphones, online communities and the Internet of Things, all provide potentials for proceeding with an actual connection between society and education. Citizen science in education exploits the capabilities of today's society aiming at breaking the boundaries of traditional practices. In addition, students involvement in citizen science programs encourages effective STEAM teaching.
OpenAIRE infrastructure updates, Guidelines V4: specifications, implementation roadmap and use case
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.
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.
Back 2 Back Webinars on H2020 Open Science Policy
In this webinar on June 12th, our presenters will give an update of current Open Access and Research Data policies in H2020.
If you want to know more about article processing charges and how they can be processed in a transparent way, this webinar is for you. We will introduce the OpenAPC project and will also showcase how it works in practice, and how your institution can contribute.
The Open APC initiative releases datasets on fees paid for open access journal articles by universities and research insitutions under an open database license. Open APC, which is also supported by the DINI Working Group Electronic Publishing is part of the INTACT project and located at Bielefeld University Library. The datasets demonstrate transparent and reproducible reporting and allow various cost analysis on fee-based open access publishing across institutions and publishers.
Join Christoph Broschinski, member of the DFG funded project INTACT started in 2015, as he shares his knowledge about APC, OpenAPCs, and also about "Gold" Open Access Publishing.
A moderated course organised by FOSTER and OpenAIRE
Are you participating in a H2020 funded project? Would you like to know more on how to comply with the H2020 Open Access mandate?
Join in this moderated FOSTER/OpenAIRE Course on Open Access to Publications in Horizon 2020 from February 4th to 8th, and attend a Webinar on Thursday, February 7th at 12:00 CET.
Target audience: researchers, project managers, librarians and repository managers.
On February 7th at 12:00 CET a 1 hour webinar was organized, providing the course participants the opportunity to get a deeper understanding of the compliance issues, and get direct replies to their questions and doubts.
This video provides an introduction to the Open Access policies and requirements in Horizon 2020. It explains what the requirements are, how to choice between publishing in an open access journal or depositing in an open access repository and it gives information on costs and journal policies. OpenAIRE is an information infrastructure and network that promotes and facilitates Open Science in Europe.
