The Open Science Lab at the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) in Hannover has invited 15 scientists to create a manual on collaborative platforms for science. The “Handbook CoScience” will be produced in a book sprint shortly before and during CeBIT 2014, the world’s No. 1 trade fair for the digital industries.
Authors from the following institutions of the research network Science 2.0 are involved in the project:
- Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society
- Hybrid Publishing Lab, Centre for Digital Cultures, Leuphana University of Lüneburg
- Museum für Naturkunde – Leibniz Institute for Research on Evolution and Biodiversity (MfN)
- L3S Research Center of Leibniz Universität Hannover
and additional authors from other research institutes, scientific publishers and infrastructure facilities.
The book sprint will take place in two blocks: in the week leading up to CeBIT 2014 (3 to 7 March), the authors will work together intensively on their contributions to the manual at the TIB premises. In the week after that work on the manual will be continued at TIB’s CeBIT 2014 booth.
