Main content

In recent years, there has been an increasingly strong focus on open access to publications and research data and good data handling practices. This is reflected in expectations and demands from financiers, authorities and institutions. At UiB, a policy for open science was adopted in 2020, which forms the basis for UiB's further work in these areas.

The library offers research support services related to open access to publications and research data. In this webinar we will give a short introduction to:

 • Open access to scientific publications (support for open publishing, open access agreements, requirements from funders (Plan S), guidelines at UiB)

• FAIR data management and open access to research data (requirements from funders, data management plans, data documentation and metadata, archiving and reuse of FAIR research data, citable code)

• Publication strategies (status for open publishing, visibility of own research and evaluation based on open science)
