One of the important issues in an institutional setting nowadays is, to guarantee reproducibility and quality control during the research process and across the entire data lifecycle. The DFG-funded project CONQUAIRE – Continuous Quality Control for Research Data to Ensure Reproducibility focuses exactly on these tasks. At this poster session Vidya Ayer from the Semantic Computing Group at Bielefeld University provides a short introduction to the project and its main aspects.
Tony Ross-Hellauer is the OpenAIRE2020 Scientific Manager at Göttingen State and University Library (University of Göttingen). In its mission to further Open Science, OpenAIRE has investigated those models of peer review that are counted as “Open Peer Review” (OPR). A first step was to collect, categorize, analyze and evaluate the manifold definitions of the concept of Open Peer Review. At this poster session Tony reported about this phase and its outcomes.
Bianca Kramer and Jeroen Bosman are probably well-known in the Open Science scene, especially from their work on the Innovations in Scholarly Communications project. During the barcamp they presented their 1-week summer school course on Open Science and Open Scholarship and were involved in the Open Science MOOC idea initiated by Jon Tennant.
OpenUp is a Horizon 2020 funded project that seeks “to come up with a cohesive framework for the review-disseminate-assess phases of the research life cycle that is fit to support and promote Open Science.” Michela Vignoli was so nice to give us a bit of background of the project and a few of her impressions from the barcamp session on Altmetrics (a topic which is one of the main topics of OpenUp).
As last year, Konrad couldn’t resist to offer a session himself. So this year he moderated one on the issue of overlay journals, a “rising” practice to make use of articles in repositories and implement a comparatively “small” technical layer on top of it to offer editor, peer review and journal layout services. Konrad provides a bit of background and insights from his session.
The Free Software Foundation Europe recently published a “position paper for the endorsement of Free Software and Open Standards in Horizon 2020 and all publicly-funded research”. At the barcamp a couple of people from the FSFE held a session on this topic. We talked to Olga Gkotsopoulou and asked her to give us a little feedback on her session.
