Open publishing: sharing results and ideas
Open science approaches are bringing major changes to scholarly communication, not only changing the process by which research is published, but what form it is published in, and what type of material is made available. The aim of this session is to introduce researchers to the various elements of open scholarly communication, helping them make more informed decisions about what to publish, how to go about it, and where to do so.
The session will cover a general introduction to both scholarly communications and open science approaches, then look in more detail at how those approaches can be applied in publishing research: open access publishing, the role of preprints, ways to make supporting material such as data and software openly available, and how to measure the impact of open publications.
This session will cover:
- Introduction to scholarly communications and scholarly publishing
- Approaches to "openness" in scholarly communication
- Open access publishing
- The role of preprints
- Making data, software, and other material openly available
- Measuring the impact of open publications
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Outline the general frameworks for scholarly communication and publishing
- Understand the relevance and importance of open science approaches in scholarly communication
- Identify the reasons for open access publishing, and discuss the approaches available
- Understand the role of preprints
- Understand why data and code could be made available, and determine ways to do this
- Make more informed decisions about how and where to publish, taking these aspects into account.
