Dear Lisa,
is it a MOOC in the original sense (content with open license) or a MOOC in the “open access” sense with no longer is open license either?

Hi, do you like citation networks? Already 51% of all citations are available for innovative new uses. Join me in asking the American Chemical Society to join the Initiative for Open Citations too. SpringerNature, the RSC and many others already did.

***apologies for cross-posting***
Hi all,
For the ones who missed the first run of the Delivering Research Data Management Services MOOC last Autumn:
We will have a 2nd run of the MOOC, starting February 24th.
The MOOC Delivering Research Data Management Services is aimed at individuals who support researchers to manage and share their data, including librarians, IT and information specialists, data stewards, and research office staff.
The MOOC will cover the following topics:
* What research support services are commonly offered and who is responsible for providing them?
* How to perform a gap analysis and what tools are needed?
* How to support researchers to develop Data Management Plans (DMPs) and offer feedback or consultations?
* How to provide for short and long term preservation and storage of research data and, where possible, use existing community standards?
* How to develop your own RDM Roadmap?
The Delivering Research Data Management Services will start on February 24th.
The teaser is already available at
Best regards,
on behalf of the MOOC team,
