Reflecting on openness
What does openness
means to you? Post-it
What is open science?
The open science rules
Open access routes
Credit: European Commission, 2017
2 routes to open access:
green and gold
Self-archiving / 'green' open access – the author, or a
representative, archives (deposits) the published article
or the final peer-reviewed manuscript in an online
repository before, during or after publication.
Open access publishing / 'gold' open access - an
article is published immediately in open access
mode. This includes a fee (Article Processing
Charges, APCs) borne by the researcher's university
or research institute or the agency funding the
Contributors should also be uniquely
identifiable, and data uniquely attributable,
through identifiers which are persistent, non-
proprietary, open and interoperable (e.g.
through leveraging existing sustainable
initiatives such as ORCID for contributor
identifiers and DataCite for data identifiers.
Quizz: is self-archiving and
publishing the same thing?
What advantages and
disasvantages do you see
in open science? Post-it
Choosing the right medium(s)
to release your research
There are several publicly accessible spaces where
publications can be uploaded and shared, such as
The online repository of your institution
and figshare for open data.
What are their differences? Group work time
