Within the context of the International Open Access Week 2022, Team Open Science of the Communication, Information, Media Centre (KIM) at the University of Konstanz organizes a panel discussion on “Climate Justice through Open Access” as well as an Open Science Meet-Up on the topic of “Open Access Books”. Both events are open to everyone.
Open research results create transparency, reduce inequities, and contribute to knowledge transfer. The climate crisis is a global challenge, and open access to scientific information can provide a knowledge base for all to respond to the impacts of climate change. On Thursday, 27 October 2022, at 16:00 CEST, everyone interested in the topic of “Climate Justice through Open Access” can join the online panel discussion (in German) hosted by the University of Konstanz.
Team Open Science at KIM organizes the online event in the context of the International Open Access Week 2022. The panellists, who will debate the relevance of open access and open science with respect to climate change, are:
- Christine Peter, Vice Rector for Sustainability, Information and Communication Technology and professor of Computational and Theoretical Chemistry at the University of Konstanz
- Christian Voolstra, Professor of Genetics of Adaptation in Aquatic Systems at the University of Konstanz
- Andreas Kirchner, Open Access Coordinator at KIM and Co-founder of the open access publisher meson press
A second online event organized by KIM within the context of the International Open Access Week 2022 is the international ERUA Open Science Meet-Up on the topic of “Open Access Books” (in English). In this meet-up on Thursday, 27 October 2022, at 14:00 CEST, Andreas Kirchner outlines the advantages of publishing books in open access as well as the scholarly contexts in which these books are popular. In addition, he will talk about the process of publishing an open access book and about funding opportunities for open access books. Everybody interested in the online event can join.
