What is Open Science for?

Dear colleagues and students,

When we ask people what open science is, we typically receive a broad variety of responses, ranging from “it’s about making sure people can read your papers for free (open access)” to “you have to make your data available (RDM)” to “that’s really complicated to describe”. The truth is that open science is all of these things and more, but it is not necessarily complicated. In her talk ‘What is Open Science for? Introducing Helio, Science Reading and Problem Arcs‘ on Nov. 29 at 2 p.m. Monica Gonzalez-Marquez will present Helio as a model that clearly and quickly explains the goals of the open science movement in contrast to the current scientific dissemination system. She will delve into the real questions involving the pragmatics of adopting open science as the paradigm for scientific practice. As such, she will discuss the implementation of the two primary functions of an open scientific knowledge base: comprehension and documentation.

Monica Gonzalez-Marquez is Open Science Manager at Forschungszentrum Jülich where she teaches researchers open science practice using Helio as a basic premise. She uses her background in Linguistics, Philosophy of Science and Experimental Psychology to develop evidence-based methods to improve the quality of the scientific record.

The talk will be held in English and will take place in WebEx. Please contact us in case you want to join! 

We look forward to seeing you!
