Open Science and Me

This workshop invites PhD students of all linguistic disciplines to reflect on and discuss Open Science and its relevance and possibilities for their PhD/research projects. Key topics of the workshop are open data and open access publications.

The workshop will discuss possibilities of and issues with open science and  considers  reasons for or against open science. More importantly though, it aims at encouraging reflection on what open science means concretely for the participants’ projects, what steps they could take in the pursuit of open science and why they would take them (or not). For example, what kinds of data and options for open access publishing are there, who owns the data/published papers, how can data/papers be made available and does availability equal open science? 

From the participants’ side, the workshop therefore requires willingness to reflect on their own projects and to actively take part in discussions. It is not a purely theoretical introduction to the topic of open science. Still, no specific prior knowledge or experience with open science is required. PhD students in all stages of their projects are welcome, whether they have a fully annotated corpus/dataset and publishable results or simply initial project ideas. 

It is strongly recommended that participants bring their own laptop in order to fully benefit from this workshop.

The workshop will be structured into two parts according to the two main topics, open data and open access publications. The two parts complement each other but are in principle independent. It is therefore possible to attend just one of the parts, or both, according to the interests of participants. Both parts include a short input section and a main interactive part.
