The lecture is dedicated to the concept of open access and open science as well as related illegal forms of content use. Dr.Kolman will tell how these tendencies affect individual researchers, research companies and science as a whole and what publishers do to avoid these negative tendencies.
Dr.Kolman holds a PhD in astrophysics from Columbian University and has been working in publishing for 25 years- in Elsevier in Amsterdam, Tokyo, Frankfurt and also in Wolters Kluwer. He is member of the Association of Publishers of the Netherlands and in 2017, became Head of the International Publishers Association (IPA).
When: 7 September, 3.00 pm
Where: RUDN Academic Board Hall, 6, Miklukho-Maklaya
Language - English.
A RUDN chemist has obtained a new compound — a dumbbell-shaped phosphate-bridged molybdenum cluster. The cluster accelerates the reaction of the formation of sulfides from oxides and can be used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic manufacturing.
Mathematicians from RUDN University have studied the properties of compositional operators in spaces with mixed Lebesgue norms. It will help describe the diffusion of liquids in materials with cracks and in porous materials. Such spaces are also useful for obtaining estimates for solutions to the Navier-Stokes equation.
A biophysicist from RUDN University and his colleagues modelled the molecular dynamics of growth of microtubules, the most important elements of cell activity. The researchers have built a model for the interaction of microtubule subunits, which takes into account their internal and external connections. The results will help form a more complete model of the dynamic instability of microtubules. It will allow choosing chemical agents for the treatment of certain diseases, including neoplasms and neurodegenerative pathologies.
