New Horizons for Open Science Researchers

#openscience

Duration: a one day workshop

Location: Vortragsraum, 2nd floor, TIB Library - Technik / Naturwissenschaften (Science / Technology), Welfengarten 1 B, 30167 Hannover. Map link https://osm.org/go/0Gy91z~7B-?m=

Date and time: January 18th 2018, 10am to 4pm

A new Open Science platform by the Leibniz Research Alliance – Science 2.0 covering Open Science in Europe, with a focus on researchers needs and Open Science discourse.

A new online platform is to be launched in March 2018 as a meeting place for the European Open Science community. As digital transformation in scholarship progresses we will look at supporting the Open Science needs of researchers, in the pursuit of their research practice, and in furthering the discourse on Open Science. The platform will be driven by a blog, with other associated channels for literature and media, social media and for experimentation.

The Open Science platform looks to support the work of Open Science researchers. To understand how to do this we are taking ‘a needs based approach’ to researchers. The idea is to find out how researchers use ‘research resources’ — institutions, infrastructures, facilities, organisational groupings, systems, etc. — identify problems or challenges that the researchers are encountering and then look to put forward solutions to these issues.

Supporting in-depth examination of the ongoing Open Science discourse is vital to researchers being involved in shaping the future of scholarly institutions and ways of working. If the future shaping of science is being determined by Open Science, then the idea and systems being implemented need examination and scrutiny if they are to bring about the positive improvements that are possible — correcting imbalances, enhancing knowledge use, or enabling the practice of science outside of academe as Citizen Science. Current topical debates that are in play are issues like: the European Open Science Cloud and the criticism of the omission for need for decentralization; or the need to address the choice terms such as — Open Science, Digital Humanities, etc. — used to describe the effects of 'the digital' on scholarship, when these terms have consequences of creating confusion, or barriers between disciplines.

The workshop focus will be to look at researchers Open Science needs and to contribute to mapping Open Science discourse.

The aim of the workshop is to help inform the development of the Open Science platform, for example: to formulate ideas for community building, for ways to enable researchers in their Open Science practice, and to look at format options for editorial and scholarly communication of the platform.

Agenda

Kickoff Meeting: New Horizons for Open Science Researchers

#openscience

A new Open Science platform by the Leibniz Research Alliance – Science 2.0 covering Open Science in Europe, with a focus on researchers needs and Open Science discourse.


09:30 Doors open - coffee, refreshments and pastries

10:00 Start, introductions and a brief intro to the platform - 20 minutes

10:20 Open Science discourse - 1 hour 15 minutes

A brainstorming session to collect pointers to ongoing discourse topics, or to raise issues that are considered important but underdeveloped. If Open Science is meant to be addressing imbalances or problems in science knowledge systems: what are these issues, what risks come with the new systems, and what actors are at play in their design.

11:35 Coffee break - 20 minutes

11:55 Open Science researchers - 1 hour 5 minutes

Editorially we are taking 'a needs based approach’ to Open Science researchers. Looking at how Open Science can be used in their practice and how we can improve their use of facilities, ways of working, infrastructures around them, and have them involved in new systems design. The aim as an editorial strategy is that we find ‘replicable models’ that the wider research community can use.

13:00 Lunch pizza - 1 hour

14:00 Platform Outline - 1 hour

This is a chance to look at what we have in place 'so far' as editorial concepts, but also to look at the wider media landscape of blogs and editorial resources covering Open Science.

15:00 Coffee - 15 minutes

15:15 Review - 45 minutes

Look at possible collaborations and spend time on issues we think are important.

16:00 End

Participants

Participants: Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) and Leibniz Information Centre for Economics (ZBW)

Directions: 15 minutes walk from main train station. From train station head along Schillerstr, turn right onto Georgestr, Georgestr changes name to Lange Laube, Lange Laube merges into Brühlestr, then into Nienburgerstr, when in the big park make a right about 400m up Nienburgerstr, TIB Library is on the right.
