Seminar: Everything you need to know about Plan S, Elsevier, and the transition towards open science


On the 9th of January, TODOS, together with the University Library arranged a seminar about Plan S, Elsevier, and the transition towards open science.

The aim of the meeting was to discuss how to manoeuver as a young researcher in a landscape that appears to be in a state of rapid transition towards open science.

The seminar was fully booked, but could also be followed on our live stream. This can still be watched on our youtube channel!

TODOS hopes that you all enjoyed the event and will join us for our next events in 2019.

TODOS is pleased to announce a side event to this year’s Munin Conference on Scholarly Publishing!


Dr. Stephen Eglen, from the University of Cambridge, will present:


How (and why) to work as an open scientist in the 21st century


The term “open science” is gaining in popularity, yet what does it mean?

In this talk I will describe what I think the term means, and will outline my personal reasons for why I think open science is sensible.

I will also talk about the related issue of reproducibility in science.

In the second part of the talk I will then give some practical suggestions for adopting open science practices.


Although the seminar is designed with PhD candidates and postdoctoral fellows in mind, it is open to all!


When:             Friday, November 29, 2019, 11:00 – 12:00

Where:            Nedre Lysthus Auditorium :


Following the seminar, Dr. Eglen will be pleased to continue the discussion over lunch. This lunch will be by registration only. Space is limited to 20 people, so if you’re interested, please register here.
