Role of Open Science in Addressing Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI)

  1. 1. Role of Open Science in Addressing Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) Anup Kumar Das Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India http://anupkumardas.blogspot.in Bidyarthi Dutta Vidyasagar University, West Bengal, India Presented in IndiaLICS2017: The 4th IndiaLICS Conference on Innovation for Sustainable Development: Perspectives, Policies and Practices in South Asia, 2nd-4th November, at New Delhi.
  2. 2. “The Responsible Research and Innovation framework consists of 6 keys: 1. Public engagement 2. Gender equality 3. Science education 4. Open access 5. Ethics 6. Governance” The European Commission’s 6 key issues
  3. 3. Indian Context AEI Framework • Access • Equity • Inclusion
  4. 4. Open Science: Importance • To overcome the knowledge divides, we need more cooperation across disciplines and across borders to help governments develop more effective and inclusive policies, North and South. International networks, open data sources, co- creation of knowledge, open access to publishing and software – these are all vital to achieving this. Irina Bokova | Director-General of UNESCO World Social Science Report 2016: Challenging Inequalities: Pathways to a Just World
  5. 5. What is Open Science • Open Science is the movement to make scientific research and data accessible to all. • It includes practices such as: – Publishing Open Scientific Research, – Campaigning for Open Access & Generally Making It Easier to Publish, and – Communicate Scientific Knowledge. – Other Ways to Make Science More Transparent and Accessible during the Research Process. This includes • Open Science Notebook, • Citizen Science, • Aspects of Open Source Software, • Crowdfunded Research Projects. Source: Global Open Access Portal, UNESCO
  6. 6. Why
  7. 7. • Do Open Access models have an impact on intellectual property rights? • No. OA will not affect the IP generated by research results, because the decision on whether to publish OA documents comes after the more general decision.
  8. 8. Open Science Movement • The many advantages of Open Science Movement include: – Greater availability and accessibility of publicly funded scientific research outputs; – Possibility for rigorous peer-review processes; – Greater reproducibility and transparency of scientific works; – Greater impact of scientific research.

  14. 14. Advocacy for Open Science: Some Recent Success Stories • In 2011, Shodhganga: A Reservoir of Indian Theses was launched by INFLIBNET Centre, to serve the mandates of the UGC Notification (Minimum Standards & Procedure for Award of MPhil/PhD Degree, Regulation, 2009) dated 1 June 2009, to facilitate open access to Indian theses and dissertations for global dissemination to the academic community world-wide. • In December 2014, the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) and the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India had jointly adopted the DST/DBT Open Access Policy. • In March 2015, UNESCO and CEMCA jointly launched an Open Access Curriculum for Researchers, and an Open Access Curriculum for Library Schools.
