Digital Open Science Tools: How to Achieve more Openness Through an Inclusive Design

Through their responsive design, digital Open Science tools promise to enable and simplify collaboration across disciplines, world regions and language groups. But how inclusive are these tools actually globally? Global means that they are equally open in low and middle income countries. Louise Bezuidenhout and Jo Havemann have examined 242 Open Science tools in terms of their geolocalisation, conditions and financing models. They have identified their weaknesses in terms of geographical openness and are developing ideas on how to make the Open Science ecosystem even more inclusive and a truly "unlimited digital commons".

Open Access Journals: Who is Afraid of 404?

Open Access journals are known to be accessible to all. But will this be for good, too? An international study on the disappearance of Open Access articles and complete journals from the internet has caused quite a stir in the community. Yvonne Tunnat takes a close look at the study and uses the example of her field of work in digital long-term archiving at the ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics to show what we can do against disappearance.

The YES! Spirit: Activating a Young Community of Users and Transferring Knowledge

For a long time now, the younger generation has been accused of showing only lukewarm interest in issues relating to sociopolitical life. Only with the “Fridays for Future” movement did there seem to be a change in this area. But the “YES! – Young Economic Summit” shows that teenagers have long been interested in current issues surrounding politics, economics and society. The project was launched in 2015 by the ZBW and now brings more and more young people together from all over Germany. Along with three other colleagues, Svea Kreutz and Willi Scholz are responsible for the project and now report on the secrets behind its success.

Christine Burblies explains in an interview today how this could work.
