Help us improving the indicators!

“The Open Science Monitor tracks the development of open science trends in Europe.

Initially launched in 2017 to support the EU policies, the OSM has been revamped in May 2018 with updated data and visual identity. But open science is continuously developing, and over the next months, new trends, indicators, and data will be added. 

We need the input of the open science community to improve the indicators and identify new data sources, as illustrated in the methodological note (pdf). Below, you can comment on the individual indicators of the OSM. Your comments will help improve the Open Science Monitor….

This consultation will remain open for the full duration of the project, but in order to actually improve the methodology, the deadline for contribution is August 31st, 2018….”

Open science monitor | European Commission

“The Open Science Monitor aims to

  • provide data and insight to understand the development of open science in Europe
  • gather the most relevant and timely indicators on the development of open science in Europe and other global partner countries

The Open Science Monitor will also support European Commission initiatives such as the Open Science Policy Platform and the Open Science Cloud….

The Open Science Monitor will be updated on a regular basis in the course of the project, until the end of 2019. Over the next months, new indicators and data will be uploaded….

The Open Science Monitor is a collaborative effort and welcomes the contribution of the community. You can read the methodological note below, and provide your comments online on how to improve the specific indicators….

Trends, challenges and opportunities for LIS education: an interview with Carol Tenopir | Library Connect

“[Q] How will open science influence LIS education?

 
[A] LIS education needs to address how open science issues, including open access and open data, affect scholarship, scholars and, ultimately, science and society. For example, there is the human side that involves helping researchers learn about and participate in the process, while recognizing their concerns. Librarians also need the technical skills to provide metadata services, manage institutional repositories and assist with research data management to further the open science practices at their institutions. Researchers are faced with funding and governmental regulations requiring deposition of data and articles in repositories. Information science professionals can help this happen by providing either repositories or links to repositories and helping researchers with the processes needed to deposit. Preservation is an important part of this as well. And the need for education about high-quality sources never goes away.”

Holiday breathers for the Open Access Tracking Project

“There may be periods during the holidays when the +OATP (@oatp) feeds are smaller than usual. But we’ll be back, and we’ll catch up on the news we didn’t tag when making merry. Have a happy and open 2018.

Consider tagging OA-related news and comment as a volunteer. Tag OA developments in general or in your areas of specialization, for example, by academic field, geographic region, language, or subtopic of OA. We’d welcome your help in making our feeds timely and comprehensive.

The Open Access Tracking Project: an Intro with Peter Suber | Eventbrite

“Join ASIS&T for an introduction to the Open Access Tracking Project by Peter Suber, Director of the Harvard Open Access Project and the Harvard Office of Scholarly Communication. Suber will be presenting his Open Access Tracking project and looking for students to provide future assistance. Come hangout with other LIS students and learn about an exciting new opportunity. Light refreshments will be provided.”

The home page of the Open Access Tracking Project. “OATP uses social tagging to capture new developments on open access to research. The OATP mission is (1) to provide a real-time alert service for OA-related news and comment, and (2) to organize knowledge of the field by tag or subtopic. The project publishes a comprehensive primary feed of new OA developments, and hundreds of smaller secondary feeds on OA subtopics, one for each project tag.”
