The OPEN week is an annual event to promote worldwide digital access to scientific research. In the OPEN week 2012 the University Library has organized two seminars on Research output:

  • Managing your Research data (21 October)
    visited by almost 70 researchers and policy makersThe first two, speeches were about the more generic data management developments and DANS, the national data repository for social sciences. These speeches were meant to give insight into the recent developments on (not) carefully handling of research data storage and some possibilities of good data storage. After the break the speeches were more dedicated to the practice of UM research and therefore of more interest for the young researchers who were seeking for tips and tricks to manage their research data.Here you find some photos of the seminar:


  • Publishing a world class paper (23 October)
    with 200 enthusiastic participants about the speeches on the writing and publishing processIn his opening speech UM rector Luc Soete concluded that “a driving motivation for evidence based research should remain the desire to better understand the counter-intuitive research”. Anthony Newman, representative of Elsevier Sciences and highly rewarded speaker on last years’ seminar, gave a good insight in the considerations of a publisher. He gave a lot of practical information regarding writing and the publishing process. The third speaker, Wouter Gerritsma took the audience into his strategy on publishing for impact. The last speaker,  Henri Otgaar, advocated for an alternative of getting research more visible (via Open Access).Some photos to give an impression:
