The “Open Science in a Time of Global Crises” panel discussion was recorded during the Open Science Conference 2021 on February 19, 2021. The video recording was shared on YouTube today.
Long running Open Science projects and areas of research are being experimentally put into practice spurred on by the current COVID-19 pandemic: preprints, open peer review, alignment to SDGs, thinking about Global South structural inequalities, and countering the anti-science infodemic. This is resulting in projects being attempted or run at scale for the first time, for institutional and industry realignment – often confronting deep rooted and systemic problems – we take a look at practitioners driving this change forward.
