Interdisciplinary Open Access Journal Launched

Wiley has launched the interdisciplinary Open Access journal Natural Sciences. The journal was initiated in context of Projekt DEAL. It fully embraces open research principles and covers physics, chemistry, biology and their interfaces, as well as seminal works from related fields such as engineering and biomedical research.

Gerard Meijer (FHI) will serve as one of the Chief Editors of Natural Sciences and Bretislav Friedrich (FHI) takes over the function as Executive Editor.

The first issue will be published in January 2021.

Creative Commons Licenses – Important for Open Access Publishing
Uta Siebeky

Every author has heard of Creative Commons licenses, especially when it comes to Open Access publications. But which one is the right one? CC-BY or one of the many other? What do all the abbreviations mean and what effects do they have?

EPICS in the Max Planck Society
Heinz Junkes

In the meantime, national research funding institutions, such as the DFG and the BMBF, require mandatory information on the further use or exploitation of the digital data after the completion of projects. This should be taken into account in the experiments as early as the data collection stage, when the digital data are collected in accordance with the FAIR principles. The FAIR principles state that research data should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.
The Max Planck Society supports a project “EPICS for the MPG” at the Fritz Haber Institute. This project is intended to support other institutes in using the EPICS framework. In this talk, the project will be briefly presented.
