Are you planning on publishing an article, giving a talk, or designing a class this year? Why not participate in the 2020 library open research challenge and publish in an open access journal, deposit your presentation in eScholarship, or make your class materials freely available on the CLE! The goal of this fun challenge is to encourage Library staff to practice open research by highlighting a variety of “open” activities. We encourage you to pick one as a goal or try to complete them all! At the end of the year we will make buttons for each activity in the Makers Lab and then give them out in a (very unofficial) ceremony!
The 2020 challenges tasks are:
- Submit to an open access journal
- Publish my data/code
- Publish an article pre-print
- Add my work to eScholarship
- Create and build my ORCID account
- Read my copyright agreement
- Apply for the UCSF Open Access Publishing Fund
- Share my educational materials
Jill pulled the challenge items together into this fun infographic! Click here to access a pdf version.
If you want to learn more about any of this year’s challenge tasks you can read this relevant guide from Anneliese. We will also be chatting about the challenge and sharing our progress in the monthly library research chats (email Jill for the zoom invite) and in the #libraryresearch slack channel!
Here is to making 2020 a year of open research!
