International Open Access Week at the UOC (2019)
The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya will be running a free online course on open science from 21 to 25 October, coinciding with International Open Access Week. Its medium is Twitter. Now being run for a third time, this micro-MOOC is a pioneering initiative supported by eighteen universities from around Spain, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and five European partners.
Every day of Open Access Week the @moocmicro account will be tweeting on basic concepts and ideas relating to open science, the benefits of publishing in open access, standards and tools for managing, sharing and safeguarding research data, participative research, social impact, research integrity, citizen science and new ways of evaluating scientific output.
Thanks to collaborative efforts, followers will be able to access this third edition in Catalan, Spanish, Galician, Basque and English. To find the tweets in the language you want, check the publication times (Central European Summer Time) and hashtags listed below:
