#OAWeek2019 Tips for Open Science in Hamburg

In the winter semester 2019/20 the project “Hamburg Open Science” (HOS) will host the lecture series “Openness in Science” at the University of Hamburg (mondays, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., University main building, lecture hall C).

Lectures (in German!):

Plakat Ringvorlesung Offenheit in der WissenschaftThe lectures cover the entire spectrum of Open Science and Open Education:

  • Is openness a basic value or ideology?
  • Why and how is Open Access published?
  • What do Open Educational Resources (OER) mean for digitisation in education
  • How can research data be managed in practice?
  • What significance do copyright and data protection have for Open Science and Open Education?
  • Why is data literacy becoming increasingly important?
  • How do citizens create knowledge with Citizen Science?

Open Up!

Open Up exhibition LeafletsAs part of its 100th anniversary the ZBW – Leibniz-Informationszentrum Wirtschaft (ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for the Economy) is showing that Open Science can also be exhibited. You can visit the exhibition “Open Up! How digitisation is changing science” in Hamburg until shortly before Christmas.

The exhibition consists of the thematic displays “Digital connectivity”, “New types of publication” and “Finding Literature”. It tries to make the black box “Science”, i.e. the question “How does science actually work”, more transparent to the general public. In the end this is the core of Open Science, as Guido Scherp – Head of the Open Science Transfer Department at the ZBW – also writes in the short booklet accompanying the exhibition:

Basically, Open Science is about improving the trustworthiness and the quality of research in a digitally linked age. The most important instrument for this is openness, resp. transparency.

The accompanying booklet, which is available in German and in English, provides a brief and concise overview of Open Science.

#OAWeek2019: A Home for TUHH Research Data

Publish research data after project completion? Nowadays, the question is not so much whether but rather where. Because data also feels most comfortable in the right company. A domain-specific repository with similar data and a subject-specific system that corresponds to the standards of its own specialist community and guarantees permanent, standard-compliant storage, provision and processing: This is the optimum for your own research data.

However, this ideal subject repository does not exist for every research data set. There may also be important reasons against storing them outside your own institution.

Since 2019, the library has therefore provided an institutional repository for the publication of research data from the TU Hamburg:

#OAWeek2019 at TUHH – Programme

Open Access Week 2019 at Hamburg

As every year in October, the International Open Access Week, this time from October 21st until October 27th 2019, will provide a worldwide forum and platform for events and activities for open access to scientific information.

The Hamburg University of Technology TU Hamburg participates as always. From October 21st to October 25th, a varied programme awaits you at the TUHH. This time the focus lies on the handling of data. Impulse lectures and an open workshop will cover this topic. The opening will take place through a poster walk in the rotunda of the University Library.

Treat Your Scientific Poster Well

Poster sessions are an integral part of almost every scientific conference. The posters on display are intended to present and visualize research results as effectively as possible and to put them up for discussion. This makes them an important aspect of scientific publishing.

Poster RollGet credit where credit is due.

Make your poster citable

The contents of a scientific poster can also be quoted. TUHH Open Research (TORE) is available as a storage location for scientific publications from the TUHH that are to be publicly accessible. There is also room for your poster.

TORE offers you:

  • A DOI for the unique referencing of your poster
  • The pre-allocation of the DOI so that it can already be integrated into the poster
  • Listing of all persons involved
  • Connection to your ORCID profile
  • A permanent storage
  • The optimized availability for (academic) search engines

Security for subsequent use

May a conference twitterer post your poster in a tweet or in a report?

Make it easier for yourself and your colleagues and add a license to your poster. So others know what you want. Creative Commons licenses, which can be put together according to the modular principle, are ideal for this purpose. The optimal license in terms of Open Access is CC BY 4.0.

Lizence generator: creativecommons.org/choose/

tub.dok becomes TUHH Open Research

TUHH Open Research

Since 2002 tub.dok has been the Open Access Repository at TU Hamburg. Here you can find freely available publications of members of TUHH in full text. The spectrum includes journal articles, conference contributions, reports and, of course, dissertations and postdoctoral theses written at TUHH.

Now additional tasks are waiting for tub.dok and therefore it will be renamed as of today in TUHH Open Research. Continue reading

Views into the backstages of the library and the TUHH computer center as well as film perfomances made the OA week perfect.

Every day of the Open Access Week a blog entry was published, not every entry also in English language. In connection to the motto of the week “Design Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge” the following topics have been addressed:

The TUHH library wants to get into a conservation with you about the status of openness in research and teaching under the motto “Of green roads and DEALs! What can we do for Open Access?”

  • Which connection exists between Open Access and the Project DEAL about nation-wide agreements for licensing e-journals?
  • What does openness means for you and your research and teaching?
  • Which aspect of openness is especially important for you?
  • Which limits do you see for openness?

 
You are invited to attend the tub.talk on December 13, 2018, 1.15 pm (until about 2 pm in maximum) in room 0.004, the large group room behind the information desk of the tub. .

#OAWeek2018 Hamburg Open Science at TUHH

Open Science TUHH requires close cooperation between research and infrastructure. On 6 December 2017, the Hamburg Parliament adopted the „Hamburg Open Science (HOS)“ programme. The aim is to make the research results of publicly funded research in Hamburg freely accessible and easy to discover.

At the TU Hamburg, the preliminary planning for Hamburg Open Science was carried out in close coordination between the Vice President Research, Prof. Dr. Timm-Giel, the library, the computer center and the presidential research department. The TU accepted the challenge that Open also stands for solutions based on Open Source. The library is involved in the following projects in 2018: Continue reading

#OAWeek2018 Welcome to OpenTUHH Policy and Poster Walk

Open Access Week 2018 at TUHH

Open Access – the free access to knowledge – has been a strategic goal of Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) since 2013. At the International Open Access Week from 22 to 28 October, TUHH’s openTUHH Policy will for the first time focus on the unity of openness in teaching and research and thus on common digital infrastructures. The openTUHH Policy developed from the projects Hamburg Open Science and Hamburg Open Online University with the goal of promoting digital cultural change at the University.
