Open Science: Past,Present and FutureAndrea Miller-NesbittLife Sciences Libraryandrea.firstname.lastname@example.org
Outline• What is Open Science?• How did we get here?• How is Open Science currently being practiced?• How can we participate as librarians?• What is in store for the future?
Open Science “Open science is the idea that scientific knowledge of all kinds should be openly shared as early as is practical in the discovery process” -Michael Nielsonhttp://www.openscience.org/blog/?p=454
The Past: How did we get here?• Thousands of years ago • Empirical science – describing natural phenomena• Last few hundred years • Theoretical science – using models and generalizations to explain phenomena• Last few decades • Computational science – using digital technology to simulate phenomena
The Fourth Paradigm • Data intensive scientific discovery • Unifying theory, experiment and simulation • Data explorationhttp://research.microsoft.com/en-us/collaboration/fourthparadigm/
Growth of GenBank (1982-2008)http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genbank/genbankstats-2008/
HGP and the Bermuda Agreement 1) Primary genomic sequences should be in the public domain 2) Primary genomic sequence should be rapidly releasedhttp://1.bp.blogspot.com/_srYW_dzrwIc/TI2ReCat2sI/AAAAAAAAAGM/qg71oPhRtlw/s1600/DSCF1005.JPG

Current Challenges • Legislation and policy • International, federal, provincial, institutional • Intellectual property rights issues • Infrastructure • Data deluge • Economic sustainability • Interoperability • Training and support • Standardized training for researchers and information professionals • Scientific culture • Publish or perish • Fear of misinterpretationhttp://rds-sdr.cisti-icist.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/eng/about/backgrounder.html
Canadian Context• Canadian Institutes of Health Research • Must deposit certain data types upon publication • Must keep all data for a minimum of five years• Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council • Strategic Network Grants Guidelines • Encourages researchers to share data within a reasonable period of time• Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council • SSHRC Research Data Archiving Policy • Must deposit data within two years within two years of project completion
Role of the librarian data management plan Help users integrate collect access data Data lifecycle Identify and analyze describe apply appropriate metadata preserve Identify appropriate repository
Role of the librarian • Planning and data management • Metadata and archiving support • Finding and using relevant infrastructure • Building and managing institutional policies and repositories • Support and traininghttp://www.flickr.com/photos/litandmore/2284209815/
