1. A Student Initiative for Open Science
Franziska Nippold1, Marla Dressel1
Organization(s): 1Student Initiative for Open Science (SIOS)
The authors address an important issue of Open Science, namely that students are widely overlooked in the Open Science movement and most Open Science initiatives and trainings are made for researchers. The abstract describes an Open Science initiative made from students for students. The aim is the promotion of Open Science for students at a very early stage. Students are the future scientists, and they will most likely carry the practices they have learned while studying over into their potential careers as researchers. Insights about the effective and successful organization of such knowledge transfer to students will be highly valuable for similar endeavours in other scientific institutions and the students have a unique perspective to share.
This idea seems very promising and the announced step-by-step guide is very interesting for the Open Science Conference community. Also, this manual included a section how to keep such initiatives alive during global crises like the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, this contribution perfectly fits with this year’s main topic of the Open Science Conference.

4. Open Education as a continuation of Open Science in Finnish higher education sector
Anne Kärki1, Seliina Päällysaho2, Anttoni Lehto3
Organization(s): 1Satakunta University of Applied Sciences, 2Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences, 3Turku University of Applied Sciences
This contribution communicates an interesting and under-represented aspect of Open Science: Open educational resources (OER) and Creative Commons Licensing (CC) in teaching. The authors present the results of a qualitative interview study with teachers of nine different universities of applied sciences discussing the status and attitudes towards Open science practices and open education and OER. The results of the qualitative survey show that the teachers’ knowledge about OER and CC was limited. Based on these findings, several steps to increase awareness of OER were made including national-level trainings and workshops.
Overall, the contribution provides very interesting basic research on the knowledge of the supposed users of OER. This kind of research is often missing, when OER are designed.

5. Educating data literacy – a holistic concept. A best practice example for open science education
Elisabeth Böker1, Peter Brettschneider1
Organization(s): 1University of Konstanz
The aim of the poster is to introduce a platform for RDM training including data literacy. The main contribution is to provide an open platform with self-learning units and additional training and to foster creating RDM training and educational units in a collaborative manner.
Data literacy and research data management are a key challenge in Open Science. Thus, the here presented educational content on the topic is very relevant to foster knowledge and adaptation of the necessary methodology. Furthermore, the abstract suggests that the content has been made publicly available and that the project has initiated a working group to avoid duplication and produce better content together.

6. Small but sustainable? Scholar-led journals and open access
Marcel Wrzesinski1, Frédéric Dubois1, Christian Katzenbach1, Patrick Urs Riechert1, Nicole Waidlein2
Organization(s): 1Humboldt Institut for Internet and Society, 2ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics
The contribution analyses the landscape of scholar-led Open Access journals that are not financed by APCs. These journals have their eligibility in the Open Access landscape because they contribute to the diversity of publishing and business models that are needed because not one size fits all with regard to disciplinary, institutional or regional differences.
The idea of this poster is intriguing and represents an area of Open Science that has not received a great deal of attention. The concepts are well grounded in research and have a workable scope. The concept is clear structured and communicated.
Overall, this topic is of relevance to the Open Science Conference and will offer some original input in the well-worn area of OA.

7. Tell me more – exploring Open Science through podcasting
Luiza Bengtsson1,2, Zoe Ingram1,2
Organization(s): 1Max-Delbrück-Center for Molecular Medicine, 2ORION Open Science Project
The authors describe the podcast as a means of Open Science “edutaiment” through the lens of their own multi-year project. Podcasting Open Science is not new, but there are few critical analyses of this practice.
It is very important to disseminate knowledge about Open Science beyond traditional formats like newspapers, magazines and journals and the potential of new media formats should be used more often. Podcasting has the potential to address a broad audience (communicating beyond academia).
Thus, this contribution is of high practical value to conference attendees, and meshes well with the conference theme.

8. Finding and reusing train-the-trainer materials in Social Sciences and Humanities: The SSH Training Discovery Toolkit
Tatsiana Yankelevich1, Ricarda Braukmann2, Ellen Leenarts2
Organization(s): 1LIBER, 2DANS Knaw
This work outlines the Training Discovery Toolkit as a tool for training delivery. Designed in collaboration with the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) community, it addresses topics on Open Science and Research Data Management, as well as pedagogical aspects. Moreover, if goes beyond the scope of SSH and includes topics of general interest, such as text encoding and dealing with spatial data. Finally, the design process of the Training Discovery Toolkit took into consideration the work of relevant international initiatives, such as RDA and EOSC. The overall work is very interesting, clearly aligned to similar efforts, and focusing on a domain that is often overlooked.

9. FAIR and open wind energy data
Organization(s): 1Western Norway University of Applied Science (HVL)
The poster discusses FAIR from the perspective of a particular domain, namely open wind energy data and provides a review of the European landscape on Open Science and energy research.
It includes a discussion on current practices, projects, databases, and on-going Open Data initiatives in the area of wind data and comes up with a roadmap for future work from the perspective of FAIR, which makes the contribution very interesting from different point of views (energy research in general, FAIRness evaluation, Open Science in energy research).
Overall, the authors present work integrating Open Science with relevant, actionable climate change mitigation (in this case through open wind energy data). Further, they emphasize the importance of *openness* when we talk about FAIR data and will have real-world examples, including public data repositories, to present this important point.

12. Open Research Data Platform in Indonesia: National Scientific Repository
Organization(s): 1Indonesian Institute of Sciences
The submission describes the establishment of a national, large-scale platform for open research data in Indonesia, which is currently also responding to the new requirements of the corona pandemic. Indonesia is a leader in Open Science when it comes to Open Access. The increased focus on research data is therefore a notable development, and the authors mention many interesting new facets of RDM (e.g. large-scale multilingualism) that became apparent in the Indonesian context. It will be very interesting for the conference audience to learn about the development of the open research data infrastructure in Indonesia and the particular opportunities and challenges they are facing. Furthermore, the contribution will facilitate international dialogue around research data management and its impact.

13. Practice of Dialogue, Participation and Open Science
Wiebke Rössig1, Uwe Moldrzyk1
Organization(s): 1Museum für Naturkunde Berlin
The described programme aims to create more room for participation and dialogue between the museum’s visitors on the one hand, and the museum and researchers on the other. This aim fits well within the trend of science museums moving from one-way communication towards places of co-creation. This aim is very relevant in the Open Science context and the reciprocal nature of the dialogue is highly appreciated. This approach is further interesting because it involves a museum (so not the typical Open Science outlet) and because it is not digital, but physical (which might be the more inclusive approach). Participation, inclusivity, needs-driven events and multi-stakeholder approach are significant elements of engaging and maximizing impact.

14. PyPads: Bootstrapping Community-Driven Open Science for Machine Learning
Thomas Weißgerber1, Mehdi Ben Amor1, Christofer Fellicious1, Michael Granitzer1
Organization(s): 1University of Passau
This work presents PyPads as a means of automating, documenting, and ultimately simplifying the exploratory scientific process, with a particular focus on the machine learning domain. This effort falls clearly under the Open Science movement with reproducibility as key aspect. It facilitates virtues such as tracking and communicating the scientific process, with computational notebooks being a key example of this. PyPads is a python library that includes and automates communication and analysis features. These include research artefacts (such as remotely stored output, input and metadata), all of which allow for Open Access and Open Data. This work is quite interesting, and has a clear, practical value for the Open Science movement for the individual researchers. The presented tool can represent a useful solution in the broader data science community.

Organization(s): 1School of Psychology, University of Leeds, UK, 2Department of Psychology, Bournemouth University, UK, 3Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, University of Glasgow, 62 Hillhead Street, Glasgow, Scotland, G12 8QB, UK, 4: Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Sciences, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London, 5Leeds Institute of Health Sciences, University of Leeds, UK, 6Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Unit, Department of Cognition, Emotion, and Methods in Psychology, Faculty of Psychology, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria, 7Department of Cognitive Sciences, Macquarie University, Sydney, NSW 2109, Australia, 8Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, Dalhousie University, Canada, 9: Manchester Institute of Education, The University of Manchester, UK, 10Western University, Department of Psychology, Canada, 11Department of Perinatal Imaging and Health, Centre for the Developing Brain, School of Biomedical Imaging and Medical Sciences, King’s College London
The work is targeting on feminist Early-Career Researches (ECRs) at the start of their research career. To spread Open Science among the research community, it is advisable to interlink the researchers in Open Science already as early as possible. Feminist researchers may need some extra attention and encouragement to engage with the Open Science conversation. This contribution, which provides evidence-based tips for feminist ECRs, would therefore be an excellent addition to the conference. In addition, the Open Science discourse often lacks diverse voices and therefore this contribution’s inclusive approach to training is especially welcomed.
