Open access webinar for Helmholtz Ph.D. students

During the forthcoming international Open Access Week 2010, the Helmholtz Open Access Project will offer a free “webinar” for Ph.D. students of the Helmholtz Association entitled “Science is open: an introduction to open access”. Interested Helmholtz Ph.D. students are invited to participate in an introductory web seminar on open access and ask question live on the internet. We are planning the webinar for Wednesday, 20 October 2010, 3 to 3.30 pm, with a rerun on Thursday, 21 October 2010, 11 to 11.30 am.

If you are a Helmholtz Ph.D. student and would like to learn more about open access to scientific papers and research results, please send an email message to register for the open access webinar to with “Webinar Registration” in the subject line. Please don’t forget to include your name, your Helmholtz Centre and either “Wednesday” or “Thursday” to indicate your preference for one of the two dates of the webinar.

We will then send you details on how to log in to the webinar. To participate in the webinar from your desk, you will need a computer with internet connection and loudspeakers and a current web browser with Adobe Flash Player installed.
