“Open and connected for everyone!” With this slogan, the Schleswig-Holstein university libraries invited participants to the launch event for the first Open Access Roadshow at the University of Kiel, on 11 November 2019. The diversity of the topics ranged from open science policy strategies through to specific practical examples.

The Open Energy Modelling Initiative (shortened to openmod) is an online and offline umbrella community devoted to promoting open energy system modeling and analysis. While there are no restrictions on application area, the bulk of funded research is directed toward questions involving public policy. As of late‑2019, the openmod has about 600 participants on its mailing list, with most of them being full‑time researchers or analysts.
An interview with Joachim Allgaier on his recently published study on how social media platforms such as YouTube have become hostile to climate science. When you search around climate change on YouTube the results are 50/50 climate science versus anti-science Chemtrails conspiracy theories.

Established indicators for research and innovation processes do not sufficiently capture the nuances of open science and open innovation. As a result, their opportunities and risks often remain obscure. A new discussion paper therefore makes proposals for the expansion of existing indicators and the development of new ones. We looked at possible innovations in the field of open science.
by Birgit Fingerle In order to better identify the opportunities and risks of open science and open innovation, including those that relate to research and technology policy, a fundamental reconsidering of the recording, analysis and evaluation of the practices and structures of open science and open innovation should take place. The discussion paper “Open Science and Open Innovation – New Indicators for the Analysis of the Science and Innovation System in the Digital Age” (“Open Science und Open Innovation – Neue Indikatoren für die Analyse des Wissenschafts- und Innovationssystems im digitalen Zeitalter”, link in German language) by Clemens Blümel, published […]
by Birgit Fingerle The study “Blockchain in Higher Education – Fundamentals – Potentials – Boundaries” (Study in German language „Blockchain in der Hochschulbildung – Grundlagen – Potenziale – Grenzen“) of the Stifterverband was compiled on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Education and Research, and published in July 2019. It continues the EU study published at the end of 2017 “Blockchain in Education” focussing on the German higher education system. The individual chapters explore the technological and design fundamentals of blockchain technology and the technical, economic and societal added values of its use, such as its potential contribution to lowering […]
Blockchains are credited with bringing great benefits for economics and society. This also applies to the higher education sector. A recently published study explores blockchain in higher education. We took a closer look at which application scenarios seem to be particularly interesting in relation to promoting open science.
The annual conference of the specialist economics association “Verein für Socialpolitik” took place this year from 22. – 25. September 2019 at the University of Leipzig. Under the conference theme “30 Years after the Fall of the Berlin Wall” close to 800 researchers came together to discuss the economic effects of German unity as well as a whole host of other specialist themes.
by Olaf Siegert The ZBW was also represented in the conference programme at this year’s annual conference of the German Economic Association (22 – 25 September 2019 at the University of Leipzig), specifically with a panel on the topic of “Open Science as a leitmotif for economics?”. The panel discussion was chaired by Willi Scholz as chair of the theme Open Science, in its various facets, accompanied by four representatives of the research community: Ulrich Fritsche ( University of Hamburg), among other roles co-editor of the open access, open peer review journal Economics Joachim Gassen (Humboldt University of Berlin), among […]
An electronic lab notebook ideally represents one component within an entire system of tools for research data management and is able to drive forward open science via the transparent documentation of experiments and the publication of data. What examples of best practice are there? And what needs to be taken into account when introducing them? An ELN Guide, recently published by ZB MED, gives comprehensive support.
