The upcoming Beilstein Open Science Symposium brings together research scientists, data scientists, publishers, funders and other interested parties to discuss any aspects on how to make research reporting FAIR. FAIR stands for Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. The meeting will take place in Ruedesheim, Germany, from 8 - 10 October, 2018.
The program for the Beilstein Organic Chemistry Symposium 2018 "Photoredox Catalysis for Novel Organic Reactions" is now available.
The registration to the Beilstein Bozen Symposium 2018 is open now. Participants interested in the overall topic "Information and Noise: Chemistry, Biology and Evolution Creating Complex Systems" are welcome to also submit a poster application. The meeting will take place from 5 to 7 June in Rudesheim (Rhine), Germany.
On January 11, 2018, the institute organized a workshop entitled "Open Access and the Development of Beilstein Journals". In addition to the Editors-in-Chief Prof. Peter Seeberger (Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry) and Prof. Thomas Schimmel (Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology), Prof. Ulrich Pöschl (Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, Mainz), Prof. Stefan Bräse and Dr. Nicole Jung (KIT, Karlsruhe), the foundation council members Prof. Fred Heiker and Prof. Michael Huth (Goethe-University Frankfurt) and employees of the Beilstein-Institut attended the workshop. The main topics "transparency in the publication workflow" and "digitization of research data" were introduced in the talks of Prof. Pöschl and Dr. Jung. Afterwards, a lively and open discussion with a view on the Beilstein journals followed.
