Berlin Science Week 2018 – ‘What is a knowledge utopia and what role does technology play in achieving it?’
As part of the Berlin Science Week 2018, Morressier is hosting a multi-disciplinary panel talk. Join us and our exciting speakers as we discuss the future of scientific sharing and knowledge dissemination.
-Jan Reichelt: Founder of Mendeley (acquired by Elsevier) and Kopernio (acquired by Clarivate Analytics)
-Sven Fund: Managing Director of Knowledge Unlatched, formerly at de Gruyter and Springer Nature
-Dr. Christina Riesenweber: Open Access expert at Freie Universität Berlin
Horizon 2020, Plan S, publisher boycotts – new initiatives are emerging from all corners of the European continent to push the open access movement forward. Technological advancements have led to a changing dynamic in the dissemination of the world’s research, increasingly causing the role of academic publishers to be called into question.
This panel brings together experts from academic publishing, open access, and science startups to debate these changes and share what their vision of a knowledge utopia is.
This discussion will highlight the advantages and challenges to open access research, new methods to measure impact and assess research quality, and the role publishers will play in the scientific landscape of the future.
