Let’s talk Open Science!
In this Star Trek inspired video, we interview Sarah Callaghan, the Editor-in-Chief of Patterns, the open access journal.
Sarah understands the frustrations that researchers can have with data. Sara believes in the benefits of open science and is convinced that researchers should not only tell the other researchers what they are doing, but should also use their work to help business to come up with the innovative solutions, guide policy-makers to deliver right decisions or educate next generation of scientists. That is why she thinks Open science is so important. But what about the challenges of making your research openly accessible?
- How can we make open access publishing fit-for-purpose?
- How can we fund academic publication?
- What are the benefits – why bother making scientific research open access?
