Event description

Description

OpenMac and Scientist Association at Mac (SAM) invite you to join us for our two-part open evening: first, a talk by Dr. Rachel Harding, where she will tell us about “Lab Scribbles”, her open access science notebook where she reports in real time results regarding the study of Huntingtin disease. She will share with us how Open Science and Open data helps her further both her career and science in general.

For the second part, we will host McMaster’s first “self-archive-a-thon”. Self-archiving is a practice in which we deposit a version of our scientific manuscript in a repository, effectively making our work Open without having to publish in open magazines. We will discuss about different online repositories (McSphere, PsyArXiv, bioRxiv, engRxiv…) and follow some simple steps to (1) know which version of the manuscript is archivable (in terms of copyright law), and (2) how to actually do it.

Schedule:
5:00-6:00 pm Keynote speaker (Dr Rachel Harding)
6:00-7:00pm Self-archive-a-thon

Pizza and snacks will be served. Should you have any questions please send us an email at orozcoph@mcmaster.ca"
