Open Science Days 2020
“When looking at the different areas of Open Science in the past years, we were often confronted with the question on where and how the growing significance of Open Science does affect reality of a daily research routine within the various disciplines. Or: how it should be affected? This is the key question we would like to shed light on during the conference. A number of challenges for academic everyday life are reflected by the principles of Good Scientific Practice. Major changes within the complex system of research routine and publication workflows are caused not least by elements of Open Science turning into reality. This applies in particular to the fields of Open Access, Open Research Data and Open Research Software, which have been at the center of attention for quite some time now.”

Open Science Meet-up: Preprints – Opportunities & Pitfalls
“Preprints are on the rise in many research areas and over the last few years several new archives have been established, e.g. for biology, psychology and archaeology. The term itself also may not always be clear, and similar but slightly different approaches exist in other research areas (e.g. working paper). In this meeting we will look into motivations for preprint sharing as well as possible challenges and open issues. Not so easy to figure out for authors is which journals actually allow the posting of preprints and which restrictions may apply (e.g. due to lack of clear information on journal websites).”

“Was Hochschulen und die Digitalisierung mit dem Klimawandel zu tun haben? Nicht nur auf den ersten Blick – eine ganze Menge. Wir sehen einerseits die Hochschulen in einer zentralen Rolle dabei, durch Online-Lehre tatsächlich den ökologischen Fußabdruck verkleinern zu helfen: wegfallende Anfahrtswege, Heizkostenersparnis und weniger Bedarf an ressourcenintensiver Klimatisierung von großen Institutionen sind nur einige Schlagworte dazu. Den Klimawandel erleben wir andererseits auch bereits im übertragenen Sinne, buchstäblich als Sinneswandel beim Thema Digitalisierung: ein Auf und Ab, Heiß und Kalt von Fortschritt und Ernüchterung bei der Implementierung. Vom Anbeten der Infrastruktur oder goldener (Tool-)Kälber hin zur Berücksichtigung gesellschaftlicher Diskurse um digitale Ethik und Bildungsbegriffe.”

FAIRification of Services – Two Examples
“The webinar is offered by FAIRsFAIR Work Package FAIR Practices: Semantics, Interoperability, and Services, and explores two facets of the FAIRification of services: the FAIR assessment framework for data services, and the features of FAIR repositories. The FAIR principles are explicitly targeted at both metadata and data, with data here being regarded as any digital resource, asset or object (e.g., APIs, workflows, ontologies, models, and others). However, digital objects can not be made FAIR without supporting infrastructure services that are FAIR themselves. One approach is a systematic evaluation of the FAIRness of services. In this regard, FAIRsFAIR is developing a FAIR assessment framework for data services alongside a similar framework for research software. The interim “Assessment report on ‘FAIRness of services” is the topic of the first part of the webinar. The webinar will briefly review FAIR assessment frameworks for data and other digital objects and motivate the need for a similar framework for services. In the second part, the focus is on repositories, which not only give access (with needed restrictions) to research data and metadata, but are searchable and offer persistent identifiers which offer or enable search functionality. Deliverable 2.3 Set of FAIR data repositories features presents a list of the features of repositories which allows repositories not only to host FAIR digital objects but also to be FAIR themselves.”

2020 EUA Annual Conference
“Universities play a crucial role in creating knowledge and fostering democratic and sustainable societies. Their impact on wellbeing and the development of a thriving, competitive Europe stems from educating future leaders, professionals, researchers and citizens. It equally comes from curiosity-driven research aimed at identifying and meeting the broad challenges we all face and outreach to local and global industry and governments to foster much-needed innovation. Yet demonstrating and communicating universities’ impact at the societal level is a challenge in itself. Universities need strong leadership, a focused strategic approach, as well as coordinated efforts across Europe and beyond. The 2020 EUA Annual Conference will provide a platform to explore how universities are making a difference, how their impact can be maximised and how to give visibility to their key role in addressing broad challenges.”

DARIAH Annual Even 2020: Scholarly Primitives
“It has been twenty years since John Unsworth famously formulated scholarly primitives (discovering, annotating, comparing, referring, sampling, illustrating and representing) as a set of basic scholarly activities across disciplines, theoretical frameworks or eras. We will use the DARIAH Annual Event 2020 as an opportunity to re-evaluate and probe the notion and scope of scholarly primitives in the context of the ongoing developments in the field of Digital Humanities and DARIAH’s continuous efforts in shaping an effective and sustainable research infrastructure that meets the needs of humanities scholars. Some of the questions that we hope to ask are: can we – and should we – put our conceptualization of scholarly primitives into a historical perspective as an expression of a particular stage in the development of Digital Humanities? Have scholarly primitives been conceptually robust enough to keep up with the field, which now includes big data, visual analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence? Finally, are scholarly primitives – and the way we speak of research as we build tools to support it – free of ideology and bias?”

Beilstein Open Science Symposium 2020: Enabling Open Science
“Open Science is aimed at improving the efficiency, quality and speed of scientific research through open and collaborative ways of sharing and communicating knowledge and data. Whether we are addressing specific global challenges such as medicines, sustainable energy generation and storage, food, better and cleaner water supplies, or more general ones such as global warming, we need to develop solutions at a faster pace than has been done up to now. To enable this, we need to build bridges and take down barriers. Driving research collaborations effectively requires new and powerful infrastructures to not only be developed, but also to be accepted by the wider research community. This includes the development of standards for data reporting, meta-data and exchange formats that allow easy indexing and findability, as well as the use and exchange of data and information (FAIR Data) particularly within an interdisciplinary environment. Technical innovations are, however, only part of the story; just as important are the changes in culture and incentives that will make depositing and sharing data the norm.”
