Abstract: Despite the dazzling development of the open access movement, open data initiatives in science and research are still trailing in involvement. Additionally, disparities in research data sharing and openness are huge across scientific communities and domains. Last but not least, formats and licensing terms greatly vary even within specific field. This talk will wrap-up current initiatives and achievements prior to highlighting the challenges ahead in front of a wide number of stakeholders. The middle-term goal is to bootstrap connections converging to a true institutional change that leads to more participative, shareable and transparent science: the science of tomorrow.

  • 2. Science and the City 1957 ● 12% of public understand scientific approach ● 38% knew the Moon was smaller than Earth ● 44% agreed science will solve social problems => Low knowledge but support for science (Withney 1959)
  • 3. Science and the City 1957 ● 12% of public understand scientific approach ● 38% knew the Moon was smaller than Earth ● 44% agreed science will solve social problems => Low knowledge but support for science (Withney 1959) 2008 ● 70+ % of public believes benefits greater than harm ● 80+ % consider science has to receive public funding ● climate and food biotech scientists should participate more => Deep optimism and public trust in science (Nat'l Science Board 2008)
  • 4. What exactly is Open Science? Free/Open Source software + Open research data + Open Access publications + Open lab notebooks
  • 5. What exactly is Open Science? Free/Open Source software + Open research data + Open Access publications + Open lab notebooks Fundamental goals: • Open-sourced tools to enable reproducibility ● Public accessibility and transparency of scientific communication • Transparency in experimental methodology, observation, and collection of data. • Public availability and reusability of scientific data.
  • 6. Need Free and Open Source? Nature, 2010
  • 7. We can haz Open Source! France, 2013 But nowhere else in the EU... #FAIL
  • 8. Once upon a time...
  • 9. Once upon a time...
  • 10. We can haz Open Access! Yet... The article is the advertisment of the scholarly contribution
  • 11. Open Data for science ● Availability and Access: people can get the data ● Re-use and Redistribution: people can reuse and share the data ● Universal Participation: anyone can use the data (the Open Definition, by the Open Knowledge Foundation, 2005)
  • 12. Need Open Data?
  • 13. Need Open Data? […] Papers with publicly available data received about 9% more citations overall, with the difference increasing over time. The researchers concluded that much of this citation difference was due to actual data reuse. "Data reuse and the open citation advantage", H. Piwowar and T. Vision, PeerJ 2013
  • 14. Steal this data (you already paid for it) […] information already paid for by the public purse should not be paid for again each time it is accessed or used. […] Policies on open access to scientific research results should apply to all research that receives public funds. The European Commission, Recommendation for the preservation and access to scientific research, 2012
