Laying out the Principles of Open Science Laying out the Principles of Open Science Presentation Transcript

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • science commons principles of open science barcelona, spain july 2008
  • (1) open access to literature from funded research
  • it all starts with the scholarly digital content: journals and databases
  • transition from “paper metaphor”
  • thinking of “papers” as containers of knowledge
  • “papers” IGFBP-5 plays a role in the regulation of cellular senescence via a p53-dependent pathway and in aging-associated vascular diseases
  • “networked knowledge” IGFBP-5 plays a role in the regulation of cellular senescence via a p53-dependent pathway and in aging-associated vascular diseases
  • “ 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
  • “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.”
  • legal implementation
  • (2) access to research tools from funded research
  • examples: lab mice, cell lines, DNA ... the physical materials
  • research materials represent an incredible investment in tacit knowledge
  • the web revolutionized search, commerce, collaboration
  • office supplies for science
  • there are no office superstores for science
  • no internet marketplaces for science
  • everyone has to pre-authorize through institutions
  • the commons allows for “some rights reserved” options to share
  • solves the access problem via contract (standardized material transfer agreements, or MTAs)
  • (3) put data from funded research in the public domain
  • ensures ability to freely distribute, copy, reformat, and integrate data from research into new research ... without legal barriers citation, attribution via norms
  • creates legal zones of certainty
  • a protocol, not a license
  • (4) invest in open cyberinfrastructure
  • 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
  • this is only the beginning of the conversation
