GRADE Research Day

The first GRADE Research Day took place in October 2019. Below is a short overview of the event:

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.

A follow-up event is being planned.
