The daily dose of Open Access knowledge came into the mailbox via newsletter - curated by our in-house open access expert and head of library Lydia Koglin. Questions were discussed such as: What is the golden road? What is behind DEAL? What must be taken into account when documents are published in a repository?
The highlight of the week was the Coffee Talk with IGB scientist Gregor Kalinkat, that started a lively discussion on the pros and cons of preprints. Preprints are scientific publications that have not gone through a peer review process, but can still be a good tool for making the interim results or the latest scientific discussions available to the public.
The response to the IGB Open Access Week was positive so that it will be repeated next year. Until then, we recommend reading the – of course publicly available – newsletters: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday (in Englisch).
