    • Stefan Kasberger @stefankasberger OPEN SCIENCE Free Science for a free Society Go to https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ for licence details.
    • What is Open Science?
    • Problem! Research Question Methods Hypothesis Test Hypothesis Experiments Case Studies Publish Peer Review „Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.“ – Wikipedia Science
    • Open Definition: “A piece of data or content is open if anyone is free to use, reuse, and redistribute it — subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and/or share-alike.” Openness
    • by Attribution nd No Derivations nc Non-Commercial sa Sharealike
    • Open Definition compatible: ● Creative Commons by ● Creative Commons by-sa ● Creative Commons Zero (Public Domain) by Attribution sa Sharealike
    • Pillars of Open Science Research 4 pillars, as defined by Kraker et al. (2011): ● Open Data ● Open Source ● Open Access ● Open Methodology ● + Open Peer Review Education ● Open Educational Resources
    • Open Data ● Data: files and databases ● Corporations, Administration ● Science: raw data, processed data, Linked Open Data ● Problem: Privacy data.gv.at
    • Free & Open Source ● Free & Open: source code and file formats ● Licenses: GPLv3 & Free-BSD ● Science: utilize software and write source code reputation→ ● Pioneering in collaborative working, versioning, agile project management
    • Open Methodology ● Science as a Practice ● Open Culture and open licenses: Get out of the ivory tower ● Science: process of open innovation, gets attention, early feedback mistakes can be recognized and→ corrected earlier ● Problems: effort, no standards, process varies depending on discipline
    • Open Methodology Data Code Inquiry PublishResearch Content HypothesisProblem Paper Publikation Content Content Experiments Case-Studies etc. Review Typesetting literature Methods
    • Open Peer Review ● Ensure quality of scientific work ● Blinded / Unblinded ● Staged? 1.Editors 2.Comments 3.Web ● Altmetrics
    • Open Access Publications ● Free ● Machine readable ● Online ● Immediately arXiv.org
    • Open Access Research Financed publicly Scientific publication Proporty of publisher Library Financed publicly public „The 15 year old pupil Jack Andraka invented a new method for early diagnosis of cancer: 26.000 times cheaper, 90 percent more efficient and 168 times faster than any other method.“ – Welt
    • Open Access ● Gold Way: primary publication ● Green Way: parallel publication (embargo?) or self-archiving
    • Developments ● In recent years: enormous increase in turnover of publishers, e.g.: Elsevier, Nature, Springer 2012 & 2013 ● The Cost of Knowledge by Tim Gowers ● Institutes: Harvard, TU München ● Governments: USA, UK, EU (Horizon2020)
    • Open Access Austria ● FWF: Open Access Policy ● OANA: Open Access Network Austria 2 top-ranked Journals are Open Access ● Viennna Yearbook of Population Research ● Living Review in European Governance
    • Open Educational Resources ● Free teaching and learning materials: books, images, web, software, data, operating systems, etc. ● TU Graz: OER Strategy We need free people & technologies for the future!
    • Why Open Science?
    • Reproducibility Reinhart & Rogoff ● Excel-Sheet error ● 3 countries not included in model „A Bayer Healthcare team published work showing that only 25% of the academic studies they examined could be replicated. (Prinz et al. Nat. Rev. Drug Discov. 10, 712, 2011)“ – Forbes
    • Efficiency ● Minimize redundancies ● Re-usability of data, code and content ● More innovation ● Faster dissemination
    • "However, several critics emphasize that one person can never possess enough knowledge in order to judge complex situations expediently, and that it may be more appropriate to use the collective wisdom of crowds." – Hayek, F. von: Die Anmaßung von Wissen Complexity / Interdisciplinarity
    • "It‘s always the other author(s) who publishes too much and “pollutes“, “floods”, “eutroficates” the literature, never me." (Braun and Zsindely 1985) Technology
    • Do It Yourself
    • → Open Science as basis Crowdsourcing ● GalaxyZoo ● Crowdfunding ● Sciencestarter Citizen Science
    • Do Open Science on your own Research ● Publish papers, dissertation, etc. ● Release data and source code Academia: course works, bachelor and master theses Workshops & Hackathons Politically: universities, student unions, departments, etc. → Open Science Projekt & OKFN Österreich
    • Open Science Working Group @ OKFN Austria ● Today: meeting of working group 6pm Wissensturm Linz ● Focus 2013: Open Access ● Open Science Manifesto ● Hackathons ● MeetUp's : every four weeks ● okfn.at/arbeitsgruppen/open-science-austria/ ● Open Science Mailingliste!
