During two seminars in early December we wish to give our PhD students and Postdocs from different backgrounds and disciplines at the MLU and other research institutions in Halle an opportunity to learn and discuss about various aspects of Open Science (OS).
In the first seminar, an overview on various OS topics including research data management, tools, standards, data protection, legal and intellectual property rights, tips for online publishing etc. will be presented. At the end of the first seminar, the audience will be asked to describe a data set or project of their own via a small survey. This information will be used to build user cases which can be the basis of an interactive RDM discussion during the second seminar.
The aim of this second seminar will be to present practical examples about how to work with and implement Open Science recommendations. During this second seminar an experienced researcher at the MLU will give a keynote lecture. It is hoped that this mixture between theory and a user case examples might help the audience to better understand open science and where and how to start practicing it.
