OpenCon Scholarship Recipient Announced

University of Guelph Post-Doctoral Fellow heading to Toronto

Each year, the library sponsors one individual form the University of Guelph community to attend OpenCon—a three-day long conference about all things open. This year the conference will be held in Toronto, and will focus on a variety of open related topics such as open access, open data, open science, among others. We’d like to congratulate Monica Granados as the 2018 OpenCon scholarship winner. 

Granados began her involvement in open initiatives in 2011, after attending the National Centre for Ecological Synthesis and Analysis Open Science for Synthesis workshop that outline the advantages of practicing science in the open. At U of G, Granados has engaged in facilitating workshops on making data accessible and has held discussions about working with open initiatives within Unversity of Guelph’s  Department of Integrative Biology. Granados is a member of the leadership team of PREreview—an organization devoted to increasing adoption of preprinting articles before publication in scholarly communication. 

I am thrilled to have the opportunity not only represent the University of Guelph but also to learn from the other attendees that travel the gather together from all over the world,” said Granados
