Open Science & Open Access
Some rogues and rebels among our scientists decided to circumvent the power of the established scientific system of truth-finding, publishing and reviewing, and to make a radical move towards ‘Open Science’ and ‘Open Access’. They started publishing their scientific papers by themselves. What can we learn from them? How can you join in? What does this all mean for the quality and truthfulness of academic publishing?
A panel of self-publishing scholars will share with the audience their views on Self-Publishing, Open Access, and the future of academic books, articles, and education. Michiel de Jong helps scholars publish their own open textbooks at TU Delft. Jan Blommaert and Ico Maly (both TSHD) will talk about their project focused on writing and producing Open Books. Aaron Martin is a postdoc (TLS) and managing director of TechReg, a brand-new full OA-journal founded at Tilburg University. Rima Rahal (TSB) is a psychologist experimenting with a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), free for anyone to see. Marino van Zelst and Hans van Dijk (both TSB) are venturing to establish a completely new publishing system that radically puts power back in the hands of the scientific community.
