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

OpenAPC - cost transparency of Open Access publishing

OpenAPC - cost transparency of Open Access publishing

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.
