From all of us at the OSC we wish you happy holidays!

Thank you for following us and for being part of our journey to sharing information and knowledge relevant to open access, research data management, open research and scholarly communication topics. 

A year is closing and it is only fit to share with you some of the things we achieved and contributed with the aim of supporting research excellence and innovation in the University of Cambridge and beyond.

And as an early present to unwrap we are featuring some blogs and news items we enjoyed during the last few weeks of 2019. Happy reading!

Looking back at 2019
  • In February 2019, the University of Cambridge became one of the first UK universities to publish a position statement on Open Research.
  • Earlier this month, the University's Policy Framework on Research Data Management was updated reflecting the expectations of best practice held by the major funders of the University and being applicable to all research staff and students.
  • In July 2019 the University of Cambridge and Cambridge University Press announced that they have signed up to the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA). 
  • 2019 saw over 2 million downloads of content hosted in the University of Cambridge institutional repository Apollo.
  • Apollo was one of the repositories selected for the CoreTrustSeal certification support following the Open Call FAIRsFAIR earlier this year.
  • The Open Access Service team at the OSC welcomed over 8,000 unique manuscript submissions during the last 12 months and the Research Data Management team processed 339 submitted datasets.
  • The OSC delivered 56 training sessions and workshops, reaching over 800 researchers and librarians. We also organised events focusing on open access monographs, FAIR data, preprints, reproducibility in social sciences, and open research in STEMM.
