This event was the 2nd in our Open Research Symposium series. The first event, in 2019, looked at the implications of Plan S. The 2nd event evolved from the questions asked in the first and although postponed and adapted due to the pandemic, we held this event virtually on the 7th July 2021 via Zoom to an internal and external audience with over 100 participants. Please see recordings of all the talks as well as some of the Questions and Answers raised by the chat during the event and during the Panel.
This event was co-hosted with our colleague Julie Reeves, who works as a Researcher Developer in the Centre for Higher Education Practice (CHEP) at the University.
This year’s event had a three-fold focus on:
Steven Vidovic, Head of Open Research and Publication Practice at the University of Southampton introduced the new Authorship, Contribution and Publishing Policy - which was written jointly by the Open Research and Publication Practice team in the library and the Research Integrity and Governance team. This has been developed as part of our Concordat to Support Research Integrity, as well as supporting our commitment to our technical staff and promoting an equitable and inclusive culture – to create a fair playing field - for all staff who could be involved in publishing process.
The event aimed to inform interested parties on the wider definition of Credit for academic work, especially early career researchers. We had representatives from F1000, Kudos, and the University of Kent
