Event description

Description

Please note that due to the coronavirus situation we had to cancel the talk. We are exploring the possibility to move the talk to a webinar.


This talk, co-presented by the James Hardiman Library and the NUI Galway Research Office, will explain the current move towards Open Science and Open Scholarship from the view from one of the main research funders, the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI). What does this mean for you as a researcher?

You should attend the talk if you are a current SFI grant holder, intend to apply for an SFI grant (or for grants from other funders with similar policies), or if you are interested in what the move towards Open Scholarship means for researchers in Ireland.

The talk from Dr Marion Boland will be followed by a brief update from Hardy Schwamm, Open Scholarship Librarian in the Library, on how the Library can help with Open Access publishing. We also have news on Open Access deals to share.

No previous knowledge is required to attend the talk but it would beneficial being aware of Plan S and SFI's Open Access policy update (Nov. 2019).
