First announcement - Save the Date!
*** Open Science Days 2014, October 13/14, Berlin ***


Dear colleagues,

The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) cordially invites you to participate in the in the Open Science Days 2014.

The MPDL is a central service unit of the Max Planck Society. It provides electronic resources to the institutes and cares about Open Access. It also develops digital and network-based, open-source research environments and offers institutional repositories for publications and research data.

The event, which will take place at the Harnack House in Berlin, is going to extend over one and a half days (October 13/14) and will include various forms of talks as well as a panel discussion.

In the context of the conference we would like to deal with various aspects of a global movement towards a more open and transparent approach to science.
The international discussion in this area, among other things, is focused on
* public access to research outcome in the form of publications (Open Access)
* a free access to research data (Open Research Data)
* access to and cross-linking of public data stocks (Linked Open Data)
* the quest for alternative solutions to the traditional review processes provided by journal publishers, in order to improve transparency in this field (Open Review)
* the development and usage of Open Source software for research activity
* the involvement of amateur or non-professional scientists in the research process (Citizen Science)

All those aspects share the endeavor for an opening of established scientific processes with regard to a greater availability, transparency and networking (Openness).

The event is directed at researchers and specialists from inside and especially from outside the Max Planck Society who are interested in an interdisciplinary communication about Open Science. Participants will have the opportunity to present their own ideas, experiences, initiatives or activities and to discuss current topics related to the scopes mentioned above.

The conference language will be English.
Program and speakers as well as concrete information about registration will be announced soon.

Best wishes
Martin Boosen
