This edition aims to promote connection and collaboration between the climate movement and the international open community.
From October 24 to 30, International Open Access Week is celebrated, an annual initiative to promote open access in the academic and research world. This year, the theme is “Open for Climate Justice” with the aim to promote connection and collaboration between the climate movement and the international open community. The CRAI has prepared activities to promote the benefits of publishing in open access:
- 2 self-training courses at the Virtual Campus:
- 3 PROFID webinars:
- Publicar en accés obert: Polítiques, ajuts, eines i visibilitat al repositori institucional de la URV. Registration: PDI, PhD Students, PAS.
- Pla de gestió de dades: suport i eines que ofereix la URV. Registration: PDI, PhD Students, PAS.
- Publicar en acceso abierto con MDPI (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute). El futuro de las publicaciones periódicas. Registration: PDI, PhD Students, PAS.
- A guide to the International Open Access Week where, among other content, you can find the “Open Access Game”. It is a game of questions and answers to learn in an easy and funny way the main aspects of open access.
- Open Access Corners. Centers of interest in the different campus CRAIs with the aim of disseminating open access among the university community.
Research data management support
A very important aspect of open science, in addition to allowing open access to the results of scientific production, is proper management of the data used during research. The URV makes two tools available to the research community to facilitate data management:
- DMP to facilitate the preparation of the data management plan, a requirement of the Horizon 2020 program and Horizon Europe of the European Union.
- RDR, a federated and multidisciplinary data repository that allows Catalan universities, CERCA research centers and other research entities to publish research data sets in FAIR mode and following the EOSC guidelines.
The guide prepared by the CRAI deals with all issues related to research data management.
Lastly, the rest of the Catalan universities have prepared other activities that can be consulted in the Butlletí of the CSUC.
