We looked at possible innovations in the field of open science.

Our new study was undertaken as part of the “OASE” project, where we are aiming to understand how open access to scientific publications influences their impact, […]


Wissenschaft im Social Web: Elfenbeinturm oder Medialisierung?

Wissenschaftliche Arbeit ist häufig dem Vorwurf ausgesetzt, abgeschottet im Elfenbeinturm zu geschehen.

In welchem Spannungsfeld sich Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler bewegen, war Thema einer Session im Rahmen der Hamburger Social Media Week 2016. In der Session „Adieu…
