GRADE Research Day 2019

October 8, 2019

The Goethe Research Academy for Early Career Researchers (GRADE) invites all interested parties to the GRADE Research Day on the topic of “Scientific Publishing”. We would like to inform you, stimulate discussions, and invite you to ring in the winter semester with us during an evening get-together with food and drinks.

  • With a special focus on our PhD candidates and postdocs, the afternoon starts with an information event “Publishing in the Age of Open”. Experts from a publishing house and Goethe University will talk about the publishing of manuscripts, data, and other research products in the spirit of Open Access.
  • In the late afternoon, a panel discussion will follow with the topic "The Future of Scientific Publishing - Paywalls, Open Access or What?". The well-known science journalist Jan-Martin Wiarda will host an exchange between representatives of Goethe University and various publishers on this controversial and pressing topic. Please join the discussion!
  • Finally, we will award the GRADE Completion Scholarships, which are funded by the STIBET program of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Stiftung zur Förderung der internationalen wissenschaftlichen Beziehungen der Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität.

We end the event with a buffet to which we cordially invite everyone.

Please register for the event so that we are better able to plan ahead (see column to the right). Thank you!
