Building an Open Science Movement: learning from the enemy

  1. 1. 1.Rapid 2. Complete 3. Open
  2. 2. 28% of the scholarly literature is OA (19M out of 67M) Over half of those are “bronze” – free with no understandable license OA articles receive 18% more citations than average
  3. 3. Awareness of open datasets went up from om 73% in 2016 to 82% in 2017 Willingness to reuse open datasets went from 70% to 80% 24% shared for greater impact, 20% for public benefit, 16% due to a policy
  4. 4. Need alignment, collaboration across funders, institutions, researchers, libraries and societies Culture change begins at home (the institution) – support, rewards and training Funders and institutions must provide consistent policies, support, and infrastructure
  5. 5. No half measures (hybrids) All scientific works freely available upon publication 11 National Funders and EC
  6. 6. Infrastructure is consolidating just as content did Still a chance to negotiate better terms for infrastructure than were done for content Is there an opportunity to reimagine
  7. 7. OSAOS Invest in Open Infrastructure JROST
  8. 8. Top three things you can do make research more effective: 1. Reward researchers for sharing results before they are published 2. Offer new channels for early sharing 3. Base tenure, promotion, and funding on rapid, open, and complete sharing
  9. 9.
  10. 10. Occupy US-based protest against Wall Street, social and economic inequality Otpor! Serbia-based protest to overthrow the Milošević regime Harvard Business Review: What Successful Movements Have in Common
  11. 11. Data-driven for continuous learning 1. Shared Measurement 2. Public Will 3. Advocate Policy 4. Mobilize Funding Ensure mutually reinforcing activities
  12. 12. 1.Rapid 2. Complete 3. Open
