Sustainability is easily one of the most pressing matters and most discussed topics of our time. This is as true for the economy and society as it is for research and thereby for Open Science. At the third TRIPLE ThatCamp we want to discuss and brainstorm on the relationship between sustainability and Open Science with you. If you are a researcher, a librarian, an interested citizen or someone otherwise involved or interested in sustainability in Open Science you are welcome to join us at this event.
This workshop will highlight the fundament rights we all have to digital privacy, explores how much institutions comply with the GDPR, introduces tools and solution to protect your digital privacy and introduces you to a massive open online course on the topic. The workshop will pose questions and concerns about the system scholars use to communicate between themselves (e.g. academic journals and monographs) and with the broader public.
DIGITOOLS is a project aimed at introducing enhanced digital tools and methods to help university staff deliver quality education through online means. The DIGITOOLS project will develop five Intellectual Outputs which will support the teaching staff from Higher Education Institutions to acquire the skills and competencies needed to create and deliver high quality online courses, including blended teaching. As a result of the DIGITOOLS project, the universities will be able to provide, through teaching staff and libraries, high quality online training courses, with a focus on subject-specific teaching.
It does not matter whether a researcher is at the beginning of his or her career as a doctoral student or whether he or she is an experienced scientist with a long scientific career. For any researcher, communicating his or her research to a wider audience that is not part of the scientific community or familiar with his or her field can be a challenge.
Open Science calls for open access to research results and for more openness and greater transparency in the research process as well. But many institutions lack comprehensive tools to effectively communicate the latter: showcase their rich legacy, available resources, full range of achievements and potential to the wider world. This presentation will cover several tools that are […]

We believe that when publishing a journal, no matter if it is a new or an already existing one, a modern, full-featured editorial management and publishing platform is a must. Streamlined editorial processes are a key to the success of a scholarly journal, however, they should also be enjoyable for its editors, authors, reviewers and readers.
Helping publishers bring their authors’ work to life is at the heart of what we do at Kriyadocs. We do this through our offerings, which include our journal and book production platform and publishing services. As a publishing technology and service provider, our goals are to help publishers streamline their production workflows, publish high quality […]

The recent success of open access across the scientific landscape may hide strong inequalities among scientific communities in terms of adoption of open scholarly communications. It is a fact that concerns regarding equity, diversity and inclusion are quite recent in the community. Then, how should we try to redesign open access to address these concerns?
Stichting IFLA Foundation Programme, in partnership with IFLA, LIBER and SPARC Europe are implementing a three-year Arcadia Foundation-funded programme to reform copyright laws and regulations that enable libraries to provide significantly improved access to and use of copyrighted works.
Background: Open Access (OA) broadens the dissemination of research discoveries and allows others to build on existing knowledge. While there is evidence that OA has been growing (Hobert et al., 2021; Piwowar et al., 2018), many publications remain behind a paywall. In many cases, journal or publisher self-archiving policies allow researchers to make a version […]
Even though open access to scholarly works is globally recognized today as a goal to be achieved as soon as possible, it is far clearer how to achieve this for journals than for books. Even organizations firmly oriented towards open access to all results of publicly funded research, such as Coalition S, acknowledge the complexity […]

In addition to the growing number of scholarly journals published by the so-called “big five”, there are tens of thousands of journals that are published by individual scholars or by academic institutions. These smaller operations are a source of great bibliodiversity that deserves to be encouraged, but can also be seen as inefficiencies in the […]
Open Access (OA) is one of the fundamental pillars of Open Science (De Filippo & Mañana Rodríguez, 2020; De Filippo, Silva & Borges, 2019). It is also a central topic of the European Commission's Open Science Policy Platform (Mendez et al., 2020) and the main goal of the CoalitionS initiative at the European level, which provides procedures for the open publication of publicly funded research.
Nowadays, the concerns for scholarly communication activities are highlighting its complexity (Baffy et al., 2020). Researchers need support in many areas, such as disseminating research findings in the open way (both publications and research data), promoting scientific output, or preparing Data Management Plans (DMPs). Scholarly communication is constantly evolving by introducing new phenomena such as […]
The TRIPLE project (Targeting Researchers through Innovative Practices and Linked Exploration) is developing a discovery platform dedicated to the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH).

National Initiatives for Open Science in Europe (NI4OS-Europe) is a Horizon 2020 project related to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). One of the project objectives is promoting EOSC and open science in 15 Central and East European EU states and EU associated countries. This paper describes the variety of promoting activities carried out in […]
Major commercial scientific journals publishers have already introduced data sharing and citation policies, while independently published journals are implementing such changes more slowly. As more and more funders of scientific research oblige researchers to be as open as possible in all research results, including data, all journals will have to adapt to support new ways […]
EOSC is a European-wide initiative that aims to develop a ‘Web of FAIR Data and Services’ for science in Europe that will provide researchers, students, companies and citizens with a federated and open multi-disciplinary environment where they can collaborate, share and reuse data, tools and services. EOSC Portal Catalogue and Marketplace is an entry point […]
The Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) guidelines include eight modular standards, with three tiers of increasing stringency, which journals can adopt to promote open science (Nosek et al. 2015). Standards evaluate journal’s policies on data citation, data transparency, material transparency, code transparency, design and analysis, study preregistration, analysis preregistration and replication. Currently, we have no […]

INVITED SPEAKER Citizen Science as many other Open Science elements has a different understanding in Western Europe and Central-Eastern Europe (Ex-communist countries). Because of many reasons CS is not as well-known in our countries as in Western European countries, though there are more and more background supporting opportunities. The role of the libraries are appreciated […]
Citizen science (CS) has many definitions but it is commonly known as collaboration between professional scientists and the rest of society (Ignat et al, 2018). Although there have been cases of its implementation in the past, the term became globally known in 2012 (Vohland et al, 2021). CS activites cover a wide range of academic […]
In recent years, the Open Science paradigm has gained importance. Citizen Science is one of the tiles in the Open Science mosaic, which on one hand enables the public to be involved in science and on the other hand it plays an important role in informing the public about science and its methods. The growing […]

The 'Ivory Tower' is a metaphor being used to describe an elitist and self-sufficient research culture, which is relatively indifferent to the extent to which the conducted research is useful for the surrounding society, and whether the surrounding society is informed about the research and its results. Outside the tower, in contrast, citizen science is carried out, presentations are given at community centers, interviews are given to journalists, exhibitions are held, popular science articles are written, all to make the research understandable and digestible outside the tower. Over the past 50 years, scientists have alternately been chased up and down from the so-called Ivory Tower.
The Peer Review Information Service for Monographs (PRISM) is offered to publishers who have registered with the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) and is provided by DOAB Foundation on behalf of the OPERAS community.

Decision-makers are not able to follow, as fast as needed, all the changes in the OS (Open Science) on the policy level. This affects the way how research outputs are assessed. Due to this, not all research outputs are recognised, and there are no mechanisms to trace and appraise all outputs. This paper presents open infrastructures and supporting methods which are capable of overcoming the mentioned deficiencies.
Science is a dynamic system with many stakeholders performing different activities, expecting incentives or rewards for the published outcome in form of a published journal article, a conference paper, a book, a patent, a research data set etc. Positive outcomes of scientific activities properly communicated aim to lead to possible new grants, academic promotions or […]
Objective: The ability of peer review to improve the scientific endeavour, e.g., conduct, reporting and validity of study findings, is increasingly being questioned (Tennant & Ross-Hellauer, 2020) and calls have been made to showcase changes that occurred to each study due to peer review (Limbu, 2020). Until such transparency is achieved, we are undertaking identification […]
The panel Media visibility as a driver of scientific and social influence will discuss perspectives based on trust, transparency and ethics in communication between scientists and journalists. The potential activities and challenges for the science media visibility will be analyzed, as well as the role of scientists in public communication and the impact of their reputation on the overall image of science among the general public.
