[#OAW15SF in Video] Relive the Bay Area’s Open Access Week 2015

Boosting Careers, Access & Understanding in 8 Lightning Talks

All year round, people in all sorts of roles—from students to scientists, professors to patients—support the idea that opening science means advancing science. For Open Access Week, in October, a group of San Francisco Bay Area partners organized a lively evening of talks touching on the notion that collaboration is inherent to that goal. Watch the entire event here, or pick and choose from the individual, 5-minute lightning talks on a variety of topics.

All year round, people in all sorts of roles—from students to scientists, professors to patients—support the idea that opening science means advancing science. The end of October, in particular, is the season to celebrate the successes and highlight resistant problems, when International Open Access Week rolls around.

This year, in the San Francisco Bay Area, seven partners active in the Open arena, put together a lively evening of talks, all touching on the notion that collaboration is a shot in the arm for science.

Here, you can see the entire event, uncut and without commercial interruption, or watch the eight individual lightning talks, one by one. (No more than 5 minutes apiece—our timekeeper was ruthless!)

 

To start us off...

Here are three short messages from a few of the presenters:

Daniel, a PhD candidate, has a nice story about how he got started doing open, collaborative science and all that his first full year has brought him and his research.

Anneliese and Marcus are librarians—liaisons, as she says, between research and scientific publishing. Hear how they see their role in the burgeoning world of open science and what they made of #OAW15SF. Then, browse the whole collection below.
