|How to make the most of your publications in the humanities?||
The workshop jointly organized by FOSTER Plus and DARIAH-EU will focus on domain-specific practices of opening up scholarly communication in Arts and Humanities. Publishing is a relevant topic for each and every researcher regardless on career status or research interest. The workshop aims to draw a picture on the changing landscape of scholarly communication and to help equip researchers at all career stages (focusing on early-career researchers) with the skills they need to excel in this open environment.
To share best practices and generate fruitful discussions on trends, innovations, and present-day challenges in Open Access publishing in the Arts and Humanities, different stakeholder perspectives will be brought together such as representatives of next-generation publishing platforms, research infrastructures, librarians, and researchers from different areas and career stages.
|Open Access and the Humanities: A Train the Trainer Perspective||
The goal of this ‘train the trainer’ Humanities Open Access event has three parts. First, to set a base level of knowledge and mutual understanding around the topic, the actors, and the tools and methods available. Secondly, to understand the specific challenges to training humanities researchers, as well as the specific issues and challenges faced by humanists. Thirdly, to imagine future collaborations, and a recurring programme of events and activities to enable them. This initiative arises from a collaboration between DARIAH, the Open Library of Humanities (OLH), EIFL, and FOSTER Open Science. It will consist of a series of talks establishing the context for humanities open access, the tools and resources available and their attendant issues, and the platforms and funding models that have the potential to deliver fee free, equitable and gold open access for humanists. Finally, we will end with a question and answer session and a discussion of further activities.
|Open Science Training Handbook||
A group of fourteen authors came together in February 2018 at the TIB (German National Library of Science and Technology) in Hannover to create an open, living handbook on Open Science training. High-quality trainings are fundamental when aiming at a cultural change towards the implementation of Open Science principles. Teaching resources provide great support for Open Science instructors and trainers.
The Open Science training handbook will be a key resource and a first step towards developing Open Access and Open Science curricula and andragogies. Supporting and connecting an emerging Open Science community that wishes to pass on their knowledge as multipliers, the handbook will enrich training activities and unlock the community’s full potential.
