Open Up & Share: Publications, Data, Impact


You like the idea of Open Science, but have a hard time finding your strategy? This course offers reliable guidance through the publishing jungle. We put the Open Science movement into context, provide an overview of various initiatives and platforms, and guide you through the process of developing your own strategy. The focus is on publications in Open Access journals, and on data sharing in suitable repositories. The trainers provide input, and group discussions allow you to see different perspectives and exercise making individual publication plans.
