Everything you always wanted to know about Open Science but were afraid to ask!
The 4EU+ Alliance warmly invites you to the third edition of Open for you - a webinar series delving into the various aspects of open science. Building on the success of the initial two series, we are excited to extend this initiative, offering an even deeper exploration of the dynamic world of open science. Join us in embracing the vision of science we champion at the 4EU+ universities, a vision that is free from paywalls or borders, truly open to everyone.
The movement for open access to publications is reshaping the academic world. In response, our series of webinars addresses the growing need for transparency, reproducibility, and collaboration by exploring a wider set of practices, such as open peer review, FAIR and open data, open software, and citizen science. Most sessions will include not only a presentation but also a flash interview, providing valuable insights from an operator or expert in a specific area of open science.
Whether you are starting your research journey as a PhD candidate, are a senior researcher, or a research support staff member or you are simply curious, you are welcome to join our seminars. Enjoy the convenience of attending online from any location and ensure your participation by registering for the seminars that interest you.
Once an author's manuscript has been accepted for publication, the author signs a publishing agreement. What are the points to bear in mind? What are the author's rights? How can they be preserved once the manuscript has been published? This online workshop offers participants to analyze publishing agreements in small groups.
Trainers: Pascale Pauplin (SU), Paola Galimberti (UniMi)

Description: Diamond Open Access consists in publishing in journals which do not require for the reader to pay to read nor for the authors to pay to publish. In this session, we will provide a short introduction to Diamond OA and interview two specialists: Jean-Sébastien Caux, founder of SciPost, and Katharina Böhmer, from the editorial team of 21st Inquiries into Art, History, and the Visual.
Trainers: Bettina Müller (UHEI), Sébastien Perrin (SU)
In this presentation, we will talk first about the phenomenon of predatory publishers; we will present the characteristics of their dishonest and often illegal business model and show some schemes of recognizing and avoiding publishing at predators. Then, we will discuss a new emerging challenge for scholarly publishing that is the identity fraud of scientific journals (described as hijacked journals). Those two phenomena might endanger the integrity of scholarly communication by violating the reliability of scholarly publications and hence, deform the image of science and badly influence your research career. Join us to equip yourself with a knowledge shield that will protect you against scammers!
This session is a workshop whose goal is to help you doing your literature search in an open environment. We will present different search tools and show you how to use them. This training include practice time to allow you to search open access literature in your field.
Researchers in cultural studies disciplines and cultural institutions are increasingly confronted with the need to sustainably secure their digital research data. In this presentation, we will outline different approaches that have been developed in order to provide scholars with an infrastructure and sustainable support throughout the data life circle. We will present different solutions and examples on how open and FAIR research data is being managed in the humanities.
In recent years, the so-called FAIR principles have become the gold standard for research data and are now at the core of policies from universities, funders and publishers. In this session, we will present how to write a Data Management Plan (DMP) that will help to make research data FAIR – that means Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. We will present examples from the natural, technical and life sciences.
Software source code contains a growing part of the scientific and technical knowledge developed in the research activities, in all fields. It is essential to disseminate and archive this knowledge.
This session will include a training session and an interview with a Software Heritage ambassador.
Citizen science includes different research practices conducted with non-researcher citizen. It makes part of the ppen science movement as a way to bring research processes closer to society by citizen participation. This session will cover different types of citizen science practices.
Many university professionnals have analysed that research evaluation had to change if one expects researchers to adopt open science practices. This presentation will account for research evaluation evolution and portray the challenges it has to face in the next few years.
This inaugural session introduces the public to the challenges of open science with particular emphasis on its relations with the issues of research integrity. The presentation will be followed by an interview with Stéphanie Ruphy, professor of philosophy of science and head of the French Office for Research Integrity.
Trainers: Milan Janíček (CU), Léa Gonnet (SU)
Interviewee: Stéphanie Ruphy

Open access began with preprints in the 1990s. Today, preprints remain a popular means of disseminating scientific results in certain disciplines. It also makes it possible to experiment with new ways of carrying out peer review and to build new publication models. The presentation will be followed by an interview with Daniela Saderi, neuroscientist, co-founder and director at PREreview.
Trainers: Sébastien Perrin (SU), Paola Galimberti (UniMi)
Interviewee: Daniela Saderi
