Participating in EU funded projects, having a dedicated Working Group on Open Access and being present and at the forefront of discussions and initiatives, LIBER has established Open Access and Open Science at the core of its strategy and vision.
LIBER is once again promoting and encouraging Open Access Week (22-26 October 2018) by supporting the following activities:
- The second edition of the MicroMOOC on Open Access, coordinated by the Open University of Catalonia (UOC). This is a course on Open Access, run in micro-MOOC format on Twitter for five days, in the framework of the International Open Access Week (during the week beginning 22 October 2018). Teaching from 12 a.m. every day for 15 minutes, via @moocmicro under the hashtag #OAMOOC18. A new thing this year is that the course will be in English (at noon) and Catalan (at 10am), unlike last year, when it was only in Catalan.
- FOSTER and OpenAIRE are once again joining forces for a new series of webinars and tutorials! In this year’s interactive, mixed approach, you’ll have the chance to subscribe to dedicated ‘tracks’, each of which involves reviewing 1 or 2 short online tutorials along with some supporting information.You can subscribe to one or all of these tracks and you will be provided with all relevant information you need the week starting October 15th. You can browse the tutorials and learning materials at your own pace, and then bring any questions you might have to dedicated Q&A sessions during Open Access Week. A range of Open Science experts will be available to help answer your questions. All tutorials and webinars will be accessible without subscribing. However, if you would like to submit any questions beforehand, receive reminders or want to be kept in the loop afterwards, you’ll need to register. More: https://www.fosteropenscience.eu/node/2495
