Seminar: Everything you need to know about Plan S, Elsevier, and the transition towards open science

On the 9th of January, TODOS, together with the University Library arranged a seminar about Plan S, Elsevier, and the transition towards open science.

The aim of the meeting was to discuss how to manoeuver as a young researcher in a landscape that appears to be in a state of rapid transition towards open science.

The seminar was fully booked, but could also be followed on our live stream. This can still be watched on our youtube channel!

TODOS hopes that you all enjoyed the event and will join us for our next events in 2019.

TODOS AGM and Julebord 2018!

We want to invite all fellow PhD candidates and Postdocs to our annual Christmas Party.

There will be food and soft drinks (alcoholic beverages can, of course, be bought).

 

Together with the Christmas Party we will have our general meeting that takes place twice every year.

The TODOS board will first give a short overview over its work and budget during the last 6 months, then all of you can vote the new TODOS board members and introduce suggestions to change the statutes of the organization as well as vote for them.

Every PhD candidate at UiT is a member of TODOS and can thus become a board member. Positions are elected for one year and are generally reimbursed with a certain amount of hours that can either be used as duty hours in 4-year contracts or as a contract extension in 3-year contracts (for more information please don’t hesitate to contact us at todos@uit.no!).

Please note that you are all invited to run for open board positions!

For this GM the positions of Board Chair, Chair of Academic affairs and Accountant will be open for the election and we are looking forward to seeing some new faces in the board!

 

Please register here if you want to participate at General Meeting and Christmas Party and have food.

 

We wish you a merry pre-Christmas time!

And hope to see you all at our Christmas party.

 

 

Your current TODOS board.
