In collaboration with UiODoc, the Association of Doctoral Organisations in Norway (SiN) is hosting the Eurodoc 2017 conference titled “Open Science – Challenges and Opportunities for Early Career Researchers” at the University of Oslo. On behalf of The European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers, we would like to invite everyone interested in science to be part of a discussion to help shape the future of scientific practice. PhD candidates and postdocs from sponsoring universities get free entry to the conference.
What is Norway doing to promote Open Science?
UHR, FFA, Det nasjonale publiseringsutvalget & NIFU held a cooperation seminar on how to achieve quality with Open Access 1st September 2016. We have briefly summarised the seminar in English which is available here.
The topics ranged from Open Access benefits, to the extra costs associated with OA, and publisher monopoly. Proposed solutions to some of the problems were an international subscription service, or even boycott of the big publishers.
