Making open science a reality, from a researcher perspective


Published on

The internet did change a knowledge dissemination. Some still have to catch up, making Open Science still have this smell of novelty. In these slides I outline 20 years of activity in open knowledge dissemination (the term "open science" did not exist yet when I started) and I observed a lot of common issues as well as made mistakes myself.

  27. 27. What can we do? ● Start doing RDM and release Open Data ● The is a clear need to fund a research data infrastructure itself ● this is cheaper with Open Source solutions ● plenty of solutions exist for RDM ● must be a scalable, distributed approach ● All stakeholders must take their responsibilities ● Early and clear IP agreements ● CLW, CLW, CLW, CLW CC-BY-SA 2.0, “Protector of the sheep”: ctor_of_the_sheep.jpg
