Recording of a webinar on 26/3/20
The outbreak of COVID-19 has caused the cancellation of academic conferences for the foreseeable future. Whilst this is hugely disruptive, we should concentrate our efforts on continuing on where possible. These uncertain times underline the importance of the values of open research, share knowledge fast, without boundaries, without restrictions, without paywalls.
We may not be able to meet in a physical space but we should still be inspired and encouraged to share the knowledge as previously planned.
Are you a researcher that was due to present at a conference? Share your posters, papers, videos or presentations on Figshare.
Are you a conference organiser who had to cancel? Figshare can offer you a free conference portal to host all the outputs your participants were due to share.
In this webinar we will be giving a brief overview of how to publish your conference outputs freely and openly on Figshare and our Figshare for Conferences offering, available for free in 2020.
