  2. Need to know on understanding open access
    Curtin U Open Knowledge Initiative
    "The naming convention for open access is to use colours, gems and metals, with no standard distinguishing descriptors – which makes it hard to distinguish the charges that will make publisher"

    Data Sharing and Curation

  4. We Need a Better Way to Share Earth Observations.
    A more accessible, open data-sharing infrastructure will engage a broader community of contributors, helping to develop satellite data products that benefit Earth science research and applications.
    "Maps, graphs, models, and other such data products created from satellite observations play critical roles because of the wide, often global-scale coverage they provide"

  8. Researching Manuscripts Through Encoding by Katarzyna Anna Kapitan
    This lecture provides an overview of some of the possibilities and challenges associated with applying digital tools and methods to manuscript materials and emphasises the importance of digital literacy in humanities training. In order to create new cutting-edge knowledge, philologists and manuscript scholars today need to be trained not only in palaeography, codicology, and historical linguistics, but also in data science, programming, and project management.
