Join the Big Do-it-Yourself Publishing Event, October 22, 2019

Door: Marijke van der Ploeg | Categorie: events, open access, open science, publishing

Some rogues and rebels among our Tilburg University researchers decided to circumvent the power of the established scientific system of truth-finding, publishing and reviewing, and to make a radical move towards ‘Open Science’ and ‘Open Access’. They started publishing their scientific papers by themselves. What can we learn from them? How can you join in? What does this all mean for the quality and truthfulness of academic publishing?

Join this do-it-your-self publishing event with a panel of self-publishing scholars who will share with the audience their views on self-publishing, open access, and the future of academic books, articles, and education.

  • Michiel de Jong helps scholars publish their own open textbooks at TU Delft.
  • Jan Blommaert and Ico Maly (both TSHD) will talk about their project focused on writing and producing Open Books.
  • Aaron Martin is a postdoc (TLS) and managing director of TechReg, a brand-new full OA-journal founded at Tilburg University.
  • Rima Rahal is  a psychologist (TSB) experimenting with a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).
  • Marino van Zelst and Hans van Dijk (both TSB) are venturing to establish a completely new publishing system that radically puts power back in the hands of the scientific community.

This event is an initiative of the Open Science Community of Tilburg UniversityLibrary Research Support and Academic Forum.
