Conversation topics

Open access to research results is a requirement from granting authorities both nationally and internationally. This is a demanding landscape because it must comply with ethical guidelines and a number of laws and regulations.

How do you move in the best possible way in this landscape? How do you know if you are publishing data and results correctly? How should co-authorship and open publishing be handled?

In this webinar, you will meet researchers from different disciplines and expertise from the library talking about open access of data and publications.
