Cover 1-2/2017
Cover 1-2/2017

“Open science” is intended to make science more transparent and democratic and open up completely new perspectives for researchers. What is exactly meant by the catch phrase “open science” and whether the enormous expectations are realistic is inquired by the authors of the current TATuP issue “Open Science zwischen Hype und Disruption”. Guest editors of the Special Topic are Michael Nentwich (ITA Vienna) and Ulrich Riehm (ITAS-KIT).

In line with the Special Topic of the first issue after the relaunch, TATuP is committed to a large degree of openness: All texts of the open access journal published by oekom verlag are available for free download as HTML and PDF files.

With the relaunch of TATuP also a non-blind peer review process was established to guarantee a high quality and very comprehensible language.

The editorial team is looking forward to your feedback regarding TATuP’s content, design, and the new web presence (also welcome via Twitter or Facebook).
