Time for discussion and questions
(in German or English)

Abstract 1:HOPE stands for Hauptbibliothek Open Publishing Environment and is a new hosting service from the Main Library of the University of Zurich. UZH-researchers have the possibility to publish their own Open Access journals. The Main Library offers support in technical and organisational issues.  If you are interested in publishing your journal on HOPE, then stop by at the second presentation.

Abstract 2: There is a crisis in science publishing and this crisis is due to three main reasons: irreproducibility of scientific data, barriers to access data and finally, non-communication of data. Science works best when everyone has free access to the data, publications, and deliberations arising from scientific studies. We created ScienceMatters, a novel way of publishing science that aims at democratising science publishing which creates opportunity both to create and access knowledge. ScienceMatters publishes only single but well-validated observations and the original authors and others can then extend the further observations in real-time thus removing any artificial barriers to publish science but also allows creation of an "internet of science".

With these presentations we hope to give you new insights in alternative publishing models and invite you and your colleagues to join the discussion.

 Join the discussion!

Tuesday, November 1, 2016, 2 - 4 p.m.

Room KO2-F-175
