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

By Marijke van der Ploeg

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.

Tips for writing a data management plan

By Petra Ploeg

Since the Research Data Management regulations came into force in 2018, researchers are asked to draw up a data management plan before the start of their research. The Research Data Office (RDO) provides a manual full of tips on how to draw up such a plan and how to address the different topics.

<<Download the manual>>

Training on May 14

On Tuesday May 14, the RDO is also organizing the training course “Introduction to Research Data Management” for researchers.

In the training we will use the CESSDA checklist for data management planning, part of the CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide. You can view and download the checklist as pdf (CESSDA, 2018a) or editable form (CESSDA, 2018b), and keep them as a reference while you are attending the training.

Lunch Meeting on the new Research Data Management Regulations

By Petra Ploeg

On Monday, December 4, the Research Data Office organizes a Lunch Meeting on the new Research Data Management Regulations for all researchers.

After a brief explanation of the Regulations, the meeting gives room for questions from the participants. Available for answering are:

  • staff of the Research Data Office
  • LL.M. Lisette Heslenfeld of Legal Affairs
  • LL.M. Moswa Herregodts, Data Protection Officer

 

About the Regulations

The Research Data Management Regulations were adopted on September 5, 2017. The Executive Board hereby wishes to make university-wide regulations available, in which the common principles for responsible management of research data are provided. The Schools will have to work out the Regulations in detail for their own School policies.

The primary purpose of the Research Data Management Regulations is to make research data more findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (the FAIR data principles). Good data management also ensures the integrity and confidentiality of research data.

Key points of the Regulations

  • List of responsibilities for researchers, Deans and the Executive Board. Each researcher is asked to prepare a data management plan prior to a new research project.
  • Guidelines for safe and sustainable storage of research data during and after research.
  • A storage period of at least ten years for research data (analogous to the 2014 VSNU Code of Conduct).
  • Research data are, in principle, owned by Tilburg University.
  • Where possible, research data will be made available for everyone. This will apply to metadata in any event.
  • Additional safeguards in processing personal data in research, including the registration of processing by means of the schedule processing of personal data.
  • The current rules for managing research data when collaborating with third parties.

 

Framework Regulations

The Research Data Management Regulations have been prepared in accordance with statutory requirements (copyright law, personal data protection law, general data protection regulations etc.) and the relevant codes of conduct:

 

Support and implementation

Support for the Research Data Management regulations is provided by the Research Data Office (RDO). The Regulations will commence on January 1, 2018, but a three year period of implementation is foreseen. The RDO will draft a project proposal for the implementation in collaboration with the Schools and in consultation with Legal Affairs and other support divisions.

 

Practical information

You can sign in via researchdataoffice@tilburguniversity.edu

  • Time 12:45 – 13:30 hrs
  • Location Library Lecture Room L 104
  • Coffee and tea will be provided
  • Maximum number of participants is 18.
