Laying out the Principles of Open Science

  1. laying out the principles of open science (an abbreviated version) kaitlin thaney program manager, science commons open science@PSB 5 january 2009 This presentation is licensed under the CreativeCommons-Attribution-3.0 license.
  2. most of the useful knowledge is inaccessible. most of the useful knowledge is in the wrong technology. we don’t have enough people working on it.
  3. science commons principles of open science barcelona, spain july 2008
  4. (1) open access to literature from funded research
  5. it all starts with the scholarly digital content: journals and databases
  6. transition from “paper metaphor”
  7. thinking of “papers” as containers of knowledge
  8. “papers” IGFBP-5 plays a role in the regulation of cellular senescence via a p53-dependent pathway and in aging-associated vascular diseases
  9. “networked knowledge” IGFBP-5 plays a role in the regulation of cellular senescence via a p53-dependent pathway and in aging-associated vascular diseases
  10. “ By open access to the literature, we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting users to read, download, copy, distribute. print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself.” Image from the Public Library of Science, licensed to the public, under CC-BY-3.0
  11. “The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to properly acknowledged and cited.”
  12. legal implementation
  13. (2) access to research tools from funded research
  14. examples: lab mice, cell lines, DNA ... the physical materials
  15. research materials represent an incredible investment in tacit knowledge
  16. the web revolutionized search, commerce, collaboration
  17. office supplies for science
  18. there are no office superstores for science
  19. no internet marketplaces for science
  20. everyone has to pre-authorize through institutions
  21. the commons allows for “some rights reserved” options to share
  22. solves the access problem via contract (standardized material transfer agreements, or MTAs)
  23. (3) put data from funded research in the public domain
  24. ensures ability to freely distribute, copy, reformat, and integrate data from research into new research ... without legal barriers citation, attribution via norms
  25. creates legal zones of certainty
  26. a protocol, not a license
  27. (4) invest in open cyberinfrastructure
  28. data without structure and annotation is a lost opportunity. data should flow in an open, public, and extensible infrastructure support recombination and reconfiguration into computer models, queryable by search engine treated as public good
  29. this is only the beginning of the conversation
