Researchers showed strong interest for the SNSF information event on Open Research Data Thursday, 21 September 2017

UZH Zentrum_SNF_20170913A total of about 250 interested researchers were welcomed at the two information events on the new Open Research Data guidelines of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) at the UZH Zentrum (in German) and at the Irchel campus (in English). Dr. Aysim Yilmaz (SNSF, Head of the Biology and Medicine Division) and Dr. Lionel Perini (SNSF, Humanities and Social Sciences Division) presented the new guidelines on Open Research Data for SNSF’s project funding, coming into effect by October 2017. Funding applications must then be handed in together with a Data Management Plan (DMP). In a DMP researchers outline what data they will collect or generate, how they will handle the data during the whole life cycle, and how they will publish and preserve the data. Additionally, the SNSF expects that the research data generated by the funded project will be published and become freely accessible whenever possible. It was emphasized that the SNSF wants to initiate a bottom-up process with the new guidelines and in particular for their implementation. This means for example that the research communities themselves can define which research data need to be published. The aim is to ensure the highest impact, transparency and reproducibility of the research results.

Survey on Open Access Wednesday, 06 September 2017

Currently, a survey on Open Access on behalf of the Executive Board of the University is conducted. It is managed by the Main Library of the UZH in collaboration with the Institute for Work Research and Organizational Consulting.

The survey is intended to determine the attitudes, experiences and expectations regarding Open Access (free online access to scientific literature). It is also important in regard to the National Open Access Strategy developed by swissuniversities at the request of the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SBFI) together with the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).

The participants were directly adressed by e-mail and will have time until the end of September to complete the questionnaire.

By mid-November, the results of the survey will be published on the website of the Main Library.

New ZORA publication lists in Magnolia Monday, 07 August 2017

A revised ZORA component in the Magnolia CMS is now available for the creation of publication lists on university websites.

The new development is primarily aimed at improving the user-friendliness of complex publication lists. These can now be configured directly in the CMS and can be changed at any time if adjustments are necessary. The lists are set up very quickly and reflect the current status in ZORA at all times. If the author identification ORCID ID is already deposited in ZORA, it can be used for unique queries. The new ZORA component also allows to add or remove individual entries from the generated publication list. This adds more flexibility and helps to avoid common problems.

SNSF Information Event – Open Research Data Policies and Data Management Plan Friday, 04 August 2017

The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) recently introduced new requirements in its project funding scheme. As of October 2017 funding applications must be handed in together with a Data Management Plan (DMP). In a DMP researchers outline what data they will collect or generate, how they will handle the data during the whole life cycle, and how they will publish and preserve the data. Additionally, the SNSF expects that the research data generated by the funded project will be published and become freely accessible whenever possible.

What are the implications for the applicants and how do they have to proceed in order to meet the new requirements? Dr. Aysim Yilmaz (SNSF, Head of Division Biology and Medicine) and Dr. Lionel Perini (SNSF, Humanities and Social Sciences division) present the new SNSF policies and guidelines on Open Research Data and will answer your questions.
