The Game of Open Access

The Game of Open Access is a board game developed by staff from Computing & Library Services (CLS) at the University of Huddersfield in 2017. The aim is to to engage researchers with the key concepts and tools required to meet Open Access mandates. Through the use of playful learning, it aims to develop an understanding of the role of Open Access through the initial idea for an article to its acceptance for publication.

The Game normally takes between 10-20 minutes to play, depending on the number of players and how much discussion takes place.

The game has been played by researchers and librarians in the context of library roadshows, in Open Access information sessions with PG researchers, at library and research conferences, and increasingly by libraries worldwide. 

OpenAIRE Task Forces

The task forces are a new programme in OpenAIRE Advance to enable capacity building, competencies and awareness raising on different relevant open science topics, involving all partners and NOADs, demonstrating a vertical approach for knowledge exchange. NOADs with more engaged activity levels are involved throughout and are also encouraged to facilitate these groups, aiming to strengthen understanding, steer project activities and, mobilise community ties.

In OpenAIRE Advance there are three task forces (at the bottom of the page you find useful resources (guidelines, blogs, checklists, etc):

  • Policies for Open Access and Open Science
  • Research Data Management
  • Legal Guidelines for Research Performing Organisations (RPOs)
Reproducible Research and Data Analysis

Reproducible research is at the heart of science. There has been an increased need and willingness to open and share research from the data collection right through to the interpretations of results. This has come with its own set of challenges, which include designing workflows that can be adopted by collaborators in a way that does not compromise the integrity of their contribution. This module will introduce the necessary tools required for transparent reporting which is reproducible and readable.

 

Open Research Software and Open Source

Software and technology underpin modern science. There is an increasing demand for more sophisticated open source software, matched by an increasing willingness for researchers to openly collaborate on new tools. These developments come with a specific ethical, legal and economic challenges that impact upon research workflows. This module will introduce the necessary tools required for transforming software into something that can be openly accessed and re-used by others.

Open Research Data

Open research data refers to the publishing the data underpinning scientific research results so that they have no restrictions on their access. Openly sharing data opens it up to inspection and re-use, forms the basis for research verification and reproducibility, and opens up a path to broader collaboration. In this module, you will gain insight into the importance of data sharing for reproducible research and how to curate and share your own research data.

DANS Data Game

DANS has developed a game especially for researchers: the DANS Data Game. The game gives an impression of the research data landscape and was specially produced for the 15th anniversary of DANS. The game can also be used in Trainings to engage researchers and start discussions. The game can be ordered online free of charge and will later also be available digitally.

Computing & Library Services (CLS), University Repository, University of Huddersfield

The University Repository was launched in May 2007 to provide a digital collection of the research output of the University. It strongly encourages all University researchers to deposit their research on open access. All citation data is made available on open access and where possible the ‘full text’ of this content is also accessible. Material in the repository will conform to the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting and is indexed by Google (Scholar) and Summon, the Library's web scale discovery service. Data from the Repository also feeds the research output pages on the Research office’s academic staff profiles. Any University of Huddersfield member of staff, researcher or postgraduate research student, can deposit material. ('Researcher' may include visiting fellows/professors, who would also be eligible to deposit material).

Content includes:

  • Papers published in peer-reviewed journals; in edited journals; in edited conference proceedings; in edited working papers series and in published monographs and book chapters
  • Other textual material supporting non-textual research outputs e.g. exhibition catalogues
  • Non textual research outputs e.g. artworks; recorded music, photographs, AV recordings and electronic databases
  • Post graduate theses registered with the research office, unless a sponsoring body has withheld permission for commercial reasons or there are issues of confidentiality
