Accessification – Erzsébet Tóth-Czifra

What do the terms “open access,” “open science,” and “open humanities” mean in theory and practice and why do these concepts matter? These are some of the overarching questions that we discuss with Erzsébet Tóth-Czifra, open science officer at DARIAH-EU. This exciting discussion on the promises and realities of “accessification” was recorded in Berlin, Germany.
