Video of Recent Presentation: “Innovation in Scholarly Communication and Changing Research Workflows”
Bianca Kramer [Subject Specialist, Life Sciences and Medicine, Utrecht University Library, Netherlands] and Jeroen Bosman [Utrecht University Library, Netherlands] will join us for our final OpenCon Community Webcast for 2015. They’ll discuss innovation in scholarly communication and how new tools are changing researcher’s workflows.
Bianca and Jeroen are librarians at Utrecht University Library conducting a global survey on research tool usage. They also maintain a partly crowdsourced database of online tools for all phases of the research cycle. Their survey aims to empirically test researchers’ choices for openness, transparency and/or efficiency in their workflows, across disciplines, career stages and countries, and has garnered 6,500 responses so far. With the survey available in 5 languages—and soon to be 7—this might be the biggest multilingual survey into how open researchers really are in their work. All results will become public, for anyone to analyze.
