New Research Alliance Projects
Two new research projects are initiated within the Leibniz Research Alliance Science 2.0. The first project ‘Science Popularization and Open Science’ is dedicated to the openness of science for the broad public. The project activities include mainly empirical studies to receive further scientific insights that enable the improvement of science popularization in the course of Open Science and digitalization of science. Additionally, promising and innovative initiatives of science popularization will be academically accompanied in order to support a continuous optimization.
The second project ‘Open peer review: a qualitative, interview-based study’ wants to find out why researchers experience with open peer review. Researchers were interviewed who experienced open peer review as authors, reviewers, or editors.

Open Knowledge Maps and Wikimedia are offering a second round of their Webinar ‘Academic SEO, or: How do I get my research to show up in search engines and discovery tools?’. Search engines and discovery tools are a way for other people to find your research. But how do you make sure that your publications are included in current and future services? The Webinar will give lots of practical tips that you can implement in no time – and make sure that your research is found by your audience(s).
