What is open science? This webinar provides a viewpoint on open science and publishing from the perspective of researchers and those involved in outreach and policy for research communication at institutions and on the European Open Science Policy Platform. What is open science for them, how does it relate to open access and publishing, and what role do they and publishers have in the shift towards open science?
The webinar is chaired by Catriona MacCallum, Director of Open Science at Hindawi. Our panelists are Dr Danny Kingsley, Deputy Director, Scholarly Communication and Research Services at Cambridge University Libraries, Professor Christopher Jackson, Earth Scientist at Imperial College London; and Professor Eva Méndez, Deputy Vice Chancellor for Scientific Policy and Open Science, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and Chair of the EC’s Open Science Policy Platform.
