Panel discussion

The transition to Open Science has created new opportunities for sharing research results with peers and society. The publishing system has changed and new platforms are emerging. How do we ensure that research published in Open Access continues to be of high robust quality?

In 2020, Elsevier and Dutch universities established a new agreement for Open Science. Wageningen University and Research and Elsevier will co-host a panel discussion on Quality Control in Open Science publishing. A panel of experts will discuss quality issues in Open Science publishing and their relevancy for WUR researchers. Topics like Open Access publishing, integrity, quality challenges, opportunities and useful publishing tools will all be covered. Plenty of time will be given for a Q&A. This event is exclusively for researchers at Wageningen University and Research.
