The main objective of the proposed training event is to bring together Greek postgraduate students and junior researchers (biomedical and applied sciences, as well as humanities) and to introduce them to the challenges and opportunities of the open scholarship agenda in different perspectives of scholarly research activity (open access, open educational resources, open research data, open knowledge).
In particular we aim to familiarize junior researchers and students with the opportunities, obligations and rights in disseminating their work, in accordance to the applicable laws, regulations and policies adopted in the national and/or institutional level.
To this end, people with long term experience in practicing the various aspects of Open scholarly communication from Greece and other countries, from various positions and fields (publishing, research organizations, funding bodies, policy makers, libraries, ICT providers, etc) will be engaged as trainers and facilitators.
During the event, participants will work together in small groups to develop projects aimed at “opening” their research in various levels. Training topics include:
Open Access: basic concepts & publishing models
At the end of the workshop participants will be able to identify all aspects of Open Science, understand the legal aspects concerning the presentation of their scientific results, evaluate and decide the best way to disseminate their results and use all available tools to share their outputs in the open access framework.
Should the event be successful, our Library will add this event in its calendar as a biannual event in order to train all postgraduate students (post-graduate programs are two-years long) as soon as they start their postgraduate research
