Transferable Skills: Shut Up and Write

Next Shut Up and Write will take place on Monday, 23 April, at 10 am in Room H 4.10. Shut Up and Write is intended as a get-together where you spend your time on reading and writing with other people in the room, a kind of writing club. The Pomodoro Technique is used to define periods of concetrated working and breaks. You need to bring nothing but your books and laptops.

Transferable Skills: Open Science, Part I "Open Access" and Part II "Open Data"

Registration is not required.

Part I -- Open Access

April 24, 2018 from 2 to 4 pm
Seminar Room on the 4th floor

Are you lost between preprints, postprints and author-accepted manuscripts? Would you like to know more about licenses for Open Access publications and about your rights as an author of scientific publications? Did you ever ask yourself, if uploading your paper to researchgate is authorized, illegal or falls into an area of legal uncertainty? Are you wondering, if you can publish your cumulative thesis online and open access?

These and other questions will be dealt with during the 2-hour workshop Open Science, Part I: Open Access. The workshop will be conducted by Astrid Vieler from the Open Science Office of Leipzig University. She will provide guidance on how the visibility of your research can be increased by making your papers freely available online as an add-on to the paywalled version offered by traditional publishers. Importantly, Astrid Vieler will rise your awareness for legal issues and technical aspects of Open Science. In addition, she will answer questions on the Leipzig University Open Access Publishing Fund.
The workshop will provide an overview of open access publishing as well as time for questions and answers.

Part II -- Open Data

April 25, 2018 from 3 to 5 pm
Seminar Room on the 4th floor

Having heard about open ways to publish your scientific papers, you might wonder what other aspects of Open Science exist and how you can benefit from them. Especially making research data openly available is becoming more and more a topic even for early career researchers as journal publishers and funders more and more require transparency in data management. What do you have to consider and what tools is the Max Planck Society offering to help you practice Open Science? Michael Franke and Wilhelm Frank (Max Planck Digital Library) will introduce the concepts and present services offered by MPDL and other MPG institutions. The workshop will also provide the opportunity to discuss pros and cons of Open Science.
