UKeiG CPD Zoom Course: Open Data and the rise of Open Peer Review

Thurssday, 10th December 2020 - 2 pm to 5 pm. (Postponed from 28th October)


The concept of Open Access to research outputs has been common currency for many years. The rapid growth of the Internet has made different publication models easily available. More recent thinking has expanded the concept of openness even further, to Open Science. Open Data and Open Peer Review are attracting increasing interest and are being embraced by all academic disciplines, including the humanities and social sciences. These approaches are extremely important for the development and exploitation of research, and hence for the professionals who support it. 

Who should attend?

Research support, information and library professionals keen to understand the impact of Open Data and Open Peer Review on publishing and on their organisations and current and future service provision. 

The key aim of the course is to provide a state-of-the-art overview of Open Data and Open Peer Review issues and to encourage discussion amongst library and information professionals who support research. It will benefit LIS professionals across all subjects, sectors and disciplines who are new to, interested in or need a refresher on these issues.


Course outline and learning outcomes

Topics covered include:

Open Science – what it encompasses; the rationales given for instance by the OECD for its development
Open Data – what it is; principles, how it is managed; policy development, practical experiences of researchers
Open Peer Review – traditional peer review practice, the characteristics of Open Peer Review, definitions, the spread of Open Peer Review, role of repositories, overlay journals
Implications for the future - our world turned upside down
