Open call for papers by the new OA International Journal of Heritage, Memory and Conflict – Arpha Blog

“Launched in collaboration with the Amsterdam University Press and the Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (AHM), and hosted on the innovative, high-tech scholarly publishing platform ARPHA, the latest addition to the AUP’s journal portfolio is already inviting contributions. 

The open-access, peer-reviewed International Journal of Heritage, Memory and Conflict (HMC) aims to offer an interdisciplinary space for the rich scholarship within a wide range of studies by crossing academic, artistic and professional boundaries; while also contributing to the better understanding of the extent to which memory sites and discourses operate as vehicles at local, national and transnational levels….”

Prepare your paper for submission to Open Research Europe (ORE)

“Over the last 6 months we have been busy building the platform which will welcome submissions from Horizon 2020 grantees in all disciplines, during and after the end of Horizon 2020 grants. The European Commission will be covering the APCs and so it will be completely cost-free for you to publish your research on the platform. 

ORE is on track for its official launch in March 2021 with peer-reviewed publications in all scientific fields. From now until then, there will be more frequent announcements from us about the platform, starting with:…

We are actively seeking submissions ahead of the formal launch in early 2021. These submissions will be published as preprints and will have been peer-reviewed by the time the platform launches. They will thus be part of the group of the first Horizon 2020 peer-reviewed publications to appear in Open Research Europe. If you are an Horizon 2020 grant recipient, please extend this message to all researchers who are contributing to your Horizon 2020 project. The submission system for the platform will open at the end of November 2020. …”

Launch of Digital Life Sciences Open Call – EOSC Life

“EOSC-Life has launched its first Digital Life Sciences Open Call: A European Open Science Cloud (EOSC-Life) call for projects sharing data, tools and workflows in the cloud. This call offers financial support for projects, to enable life science researchers to connect their research to the cloud, alongside training, advice and assistance from data experts, tool developers and cloud specialists. Proposals should align with the goals of EOSC (European Open Science Cloud) – ie. enabling data sharing for the purpose of furthering scientific research. The project’s overarching aim is to make life science research data publicly available in a FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) way in the EOSC….”

Call for papers: IEEE Software Special Issue on Collaborative Aspects of Open Data in Software Engineering – Policy and Research – Open Knowledge Forums

“Happy to announce the call for papers to the IEEE Software Special Issue on Collaborative Aspects of Open Data in Software Engineering.

With this issue, we want to focus on the collaborative aspects of Open Data in software engineering and how these aspects can help – or hinder – practitioners within both private and public organizations to exploit the potential benefits.

Extant research promotes the creation of data ecosystems or collaboratives but is limited in terms of guidelines and support for software engineers. Inspiration can be elicited from the more thoroughly investigated collaborative practices present in Open Source Software communities and Software Ecosystems….”

Call for Speakers and Poster Presentations | Open Science Conference

“Carefully selected talks given by international experts are an essential part of the conference programme. Speakers are invited by the programme committee. With this call we invite you to apply for a talk at the conference. Talks should address Open Science aspects on a broader level and cover topics including (but not limited to):

Reflections on effects and impact of current crises on open research practices and science communication
Lessons learned from crises and approaches to sustainably ensure the opening of science in future
Resume on Open Science practices and their application and acceptance in scientific communities
Overview on existing research on the scientific benefit of Open Science practices and their impact in society such as coping with crises
Overview on Open Science education and science communication to different target groups in the broad public….”

Call for Proposals — Open Education Conference 2020

“The theme of the 2020 Open Education Conference is “Reimagining Open Education.” This theme reflects how the events of 2020 have underscored urgent challenges in education—both new and longstanding—from the rapid pivot online in response to a global pandemic, structural inequities including systemic racism, and barriers to the access and full participation in the exchange of knowledge. 

This year’s conference seeks to inspire attendees to “reimagine” open education as a solution to these many challenges, and also to think critically about how the current practice of open education can be more equitable and inclusive. The theme also applies to the conference itself, which is in the process of “revising” and “remixing” itself as a community-owned event as it enters its seventeenth year.

Reimagining must be an active process. It starts with critical reflection and the formulation of ideas, but it is only meaningful if concrete action follows. In choosing the theme of reimagining, our intent is to spark active efforts to reinvigorate, reinvent, and reshape open education for a more equitable future….”

Bringing Open GLAM to the world, and the world to Open GLAM | by scann | Open GLAM | Jul, 2020 | Medium

“The call is still open if you want to submit a proposal for a story. We’re evaluating stories on a “first come, first served” basis and we’ll be reaching our limit of stories soon! Don’t overthink it: just send us a title, a short summary of what you want to write, and make sure that your project or case study complies with the Open Definition.

We want to thank Creative Commons for its generous support for the CC Open GLAM Platform; the CC Open GLAM Platform community that reviewed our plans for this year; and the selection committee made up of Douglas McCarthy, co-editor of this publication, Mariana Ziku and Franziska Latell.”

Call for submissions | Open Research Award | University of Groningen

“The University of Groningen Library (UB) and the Open Science Community Groningen (OSCG) launch the annual Open Research Award. The award celebrates the many ways in which academics make their research more accessible, transparent or reproducible.

We welcome the submission of case studies that reflect on the use of open research practices throughout the research cycle (e.g. choice of methodology, preregistration), for presenting research output (sharing data, code) and publishing the results (open access)….”
