  • 2. 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?
  • 3. 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
  • 4. 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
  • 5. The Fourth Paradigm • Data intensive scientific discovery • Unifying theory, experiment and simulation • Data explorationhttp://research.microsoft.com/en-us/collaboration/fourthparadigm/
  • 6. Growth of GenBank (1982-2008)http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genbank/genbankstats-2008/
  • 7. 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

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
  • 12. 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
