Panel Discussion, In English, Duration 1h, for Librarians, Funders, Library Suppliers

When Annual Reviews introduced Subscribe to Open (S20), they introduced an alternative way to convert subscription journals to open access, with a model that isn’t reliant on Article Processing Charges (APCs). Since then, more publishers have taken up the S20 model recognizing that certain journal titles and subject communities require a different path to transition to open access. This panel will include a selection of publishers that are exploring S20 for their portfolios. We will discuss the reasons why they chose to test the model, the pros and cons, and future prospects.

Panel Discussion, of interest for researchers in STEM, in English, Part of the Berlin Science Week

Research communities in the STEM fields are still largely dominated by (mostly white) men. At the same time, women and academics from marginalized groups have been organizing and fighting for years to make STEM more inclusive and diverse. This panel discussion will assess where we stand and how we can achieve gender equity and more diversity in STEM disciplines. The intersection of gender equity with issues surrounding race and sexual orientation will be explored.

Webinar, in English, for librarians and academics

Linda Bennett (moderator), Michael Levine-Clark (Dean of Libraries at Denver Universities), Dr. Gernot Deinzer (Regensburg University), Helen Adey (Nottingham Trent)

Webinar, in English, of interest for librarians worldwide

Post-lockdown, librarians have become the heroes and heroines of academia. Covid-19 has undoubtedly brought huge challenges, but in your professional capacity you – and, inspired by you, your publisher partners – are seizing the opportunities following in its wake.  This is the silver lining that marks the transition from tradition to not only the new normal, but the next normal and even presages the normal after that!

Please join us for a debate on how the pandemic and subsequent lockdown has affected libraries and the communities they serve; and what will happen next. Share your experiences, insights and “crystal ball” predictions.  Let us celebrate your achievements!

Panel discussion, of interest for librarians, funders and academics, in English

Open research speeds up the collective development of scholarly communication by making research available to anyone with internet access, anywhere in the world. It fosters academic exchange by removing technical, financial and legal barriers. That said, as a predominantly humanities publisher, at De Gruyter we recognize that the transition to open access is not a uniform one and we’re working closely with our researchers, librarians and research organisations to make this journey together. For subject areas where authors do not have funding to pay for APCs or BPCs, De Gruyter is working on other business models that distribute publications fees across different stakeholders. Our goal is to enable open access publishing for everyone.

Jürgen Dinkel (Uni Leipzig), Steffen Fiebrig, Frank Reichherzer (HU Berlin) und Corinna Ruth Unger (EUI)

Buchvorstellung und Kommentar, auf Deutsch, von Interesse für Autor*innen und Nachwuchsforscher*innen

Buchvorstellung der Neuerscheinung "Nord/Süd. Perspektiven auf eine globale Konstellation" mit Kommentaren und anschließender öffentlicher Diskussion.

Ab den 1960er Jahren gerieten die Begriffe „Nord" und „Süd" zu einflussreichen Chiffren für das Sprechen über globale Beziehungen, Abhängigkeiten und nicht zuletzt Ungleichheiten. Aber wann begann das Sprechen von Nord und Süd? Welche alternativen Deutungsweisen lösten es ab? Welche Akteure oder Akteurskonstellationen brachten das Sprechen über Nord und Süd überhaupt erst hervor?

David Sleeman (De Gruyter)

Webinar, of interest for researchers and authors, especially from Sweden, in English

‘Writing and Structuring Papers for Successful Publication’ with David Sleeman, Senior Journals Manager, De Gruyter
 
Early career researchers and aspiring authors of journal articles may find this talk particularly useful for key insights on getting published and also for some of the requirements expected from editors and reviewers. David Sleeman will share his experience on what is important to pay attention to in writing a research paper in preparation for submission to a peer-review journal, to have the best chance of acceptance.  
 
Publishing with De Gruyter helps authors comply with Swedish national guidelines for publishing Open Access. De Gruyter’s agreement with participating libraries in Sweden means that all articles are automatically offered as Open Access where available, and in many cases the cost of Open Access is already covered by the institution.  

The talk will cover:
- Writing a research paper
- Submission guidelines
-  Key insights on getting published
- Open Access publishing and authors

Join the talk to understand the publishing process and increase your chances of successful publication as a new author!

Taking Inventory Optimization to the Next Level

Webinar with panel discussion, in English, of interest for academics and professionals in the field of supply chain

 
 

Eric Wilson, Koen Cobbaert, Bram Desmet, Karl-Eric Devaux, Stefan de Kok, Nicolas Vandeput, Stefan Giesen

As academics develop more and more advanced models for inventory optimization, how can we bring those to practitioners?
Should we promote the use of simple models that are properly used and understood, or promote the use of more complex recent models?
Are the assumptions used in common inventory optimization models relevant for practitioners?
What skills should we teach to future supply chain planners?

How to Tell the Story of Western monasticism's Medieval Past in the 21st century


July 9, 2020
Interview and Q&A, in English

Steven Vanderputten, Ghent University

From the deserts of Egypt to the emergence of the great monastic orders, the story of late antique and medieval monasticism in the West used to seem straightforward. But today we see the story as far 'messier' – less linear, less unified, and more historicized.
Join our interview with Steven Vanderputten for an insightful discussion about how the research on European Medieval Monasticism has been transformed in recent years and what future narratives of medieval monasticism might look like. After a 15-minute interview, the floor was opened for questions from the audience.

Webinar, in English, ER&L Conference Session

This session will detail the complex ecosystem that university presses and libraries navigate in a daily effort to disseminate and sustainably support the creation of high-quality scholarly content.

The results of this pilot and recommended way forward will be shared, with a group discussion on future next steps.
