From 31 October till 4 November the Open Week has been organised as part of the worldwide Open Access Week, an annual event that promotes digital access to scientific research. The University Library has made her contributions to this endeavor by hosting related activities. The seminars as been organised in the Open week are fine examples.
Have a look at some pictures that were taken on 20 October, during the seminar ‘Publishing a world class paper’!
More than 150 participants took part in the seminar on 20 October. Three speakers gave good advice related to the writing and publishing process, whereas the fourth speaker talked about an alternative of getting research more visible.
Meer dan dertig verhalen die bewijzen wat de waarde is van Open Access. Zowel verhalen uit Europa als van daarbuiten beschrijven de positieve effecten op (wetenschappelijk) onderzoek door het open toegankelijk maken van de onderzoeksresultaten.
In a video message Ms Kroes says that open access to research results – both publications and research data – is not just a luxury. She sees Open Access as a must for the Netherlands and Europe if they are to be able to compete internationally.
