«Open science and content piracy». Dr.Michiel Kolman, Vice-President for interaction with global academic community delivers an open lecture at RUDN

Peoples’ friendship university of Russia and Elsevier invite to a lecture of Dr.Michiel Kolman, Elsevier Vice-President for interaction with global academic community and President of the International Publishers Association.

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

Scientists Reveal the Water Column of the Yamal Lakes Can Be a Microbial Filter

Scientists from the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology RAS, RUDN University, St. Petersburg State University and the Tyumen Scientific Centre SB RAS studied the microbial communities from several lakes of the Yamal Peninsula. It turned out that methanotrophs (bacteria that use methane as a source of energy) consume methane more actively in the deep mature lakes of the peninsula than in small thermokarst lakes. In this regard, methane emissions into the atmosphere from the surface of deep lakes are low, and only small (relatively younger thermokarst lakes with constitutional ground ice) can make a significant contribution to methane emissions in the north of Western Siberia. Thus, bacteria perform an important function for the climate balance — they reduce the emission of methane into the atmosphere.
