New ways of scientific publishing

Webinar IconOnline-Seminar (max. 15 participants)

Scientific publishing and communication about the latest research findings have changed fundamentally over the last ten years. The digital transformation and mechanisms, such as those we know from social networks, have created new opportunities to open up and expand scientific discourse. Terms such as open access and open data, altmetrics or post-publication peer review often cause uncertainty among academics, as their meaning and potential are often not fully known. However, scientific publications in specialist journals or specialist books are still the decisive indicator for scientific reputation and scientific careers. Young researchers, librarians, research funders and those responsible for Open Access at institutions and universities are therefore faced with the question of how to deal with these new opportunities and platforms such as or ResearchGate.

This seminar focuses on how academics can efficiently and sustainably generate added value for themselves and the dissemination of their work from the new forms of publishing presented. Together with the participants, they will also work out how to increase the visibility of their own research and in what form discourse and collaboration with colleagues can take place.
