The Edge is happy to announce a new programming series for the 2016-2017 academic year focused on the theme of “OPEN.” The rise of digital tools and online services expand the possibilities for collaborative research, scholarly publishing, and new forms of scholarship. This year’s OPEN series considers the academic, economic, social, and technical implications of embracing a variety of forms of open research.
Thu, Sept 22: Our research series begins this fall with a talk by Joyce Ogburn (Appalachian State Libraries). Professor Ogburn considers the intersection of a growing body of formal principles of open scholarly communication with current academic practices.
Mon, Oct. 3: Our second event in the Open series, A Revolution in Evolution: Open Science Projects at Duke, considers the influence of open science on research and teaching at Duke. Both Doug Boyer (MorphoSource) and Karen Cranston (Tree of Life, Data Carpentry) will share their experiences integrating open science principles in their research.
We look forward to expanding the discussion on open scholarship and hope to see you at one of our upcoming events!
