LIBER and LERU roadmap towards Open Access

  1. 1. The LERU Roadmap towards OpenAccess - From a LIBER’s perspectiveWouter SchallierExecutive Director of LIBER (Association of European ResearchLibraries)wouter.schallier@kb.nlwww.libereurope.eu LERU Launch Event Roadmap towards OA, Brussels, 17 June 2011
  2. 2. Contents1. We live in a (primary) data world2. E-science fiction?3. E-science and Open Access4. Conclusions LERU Launch Event Roadmap towards OA, Brussels, 17 June 2011
  3. 3. Sharing data is a necessity not a luxury The world is changing: From an information to a (primary) data society  Data deluge: now and even more in the future  Mission of research institutes: doing research and disseminating the results We need NEW models for scholarly communication  Cf. Obama admin, EC: open public data  Universities  Research libraries and data centres LERU Launch Event Roadmap towards OA, Brussels, 17 June 2011

  5. 5. It’s all about laaaaaarge amounts of data “Data are no longer considered as interim products to be discarded once the research reporting them is published. Rather, they have become important sources of scholarly content to be used and re-used.” Borgman, The role of libraries in e-science Raw data from a central Pb+Pb event for 40 rows of the Main TPC Image: http://na49info.web.cern.ch/na49info/Public/Press/pictures/mtpc40rowsRawData.gif LERU Launch Event Roadmap towards OA, Brussels, 17 June 2011
  6. 6. E-science is not a fiction  Large scale computing resources Data -intensive  Carried out over the internet  Collaborative (team science, virtual science communities)  Distributed (networked science)  Interdisciplinary  Heterogeneous  Quick and wide dissemination LERU Launch Event Roadmap towards OA, Brussels, 17 June 2011
  7. 7. The paradox of e-science I share my data because I want/need your dataVs. I don’t share data because it doesn’t help my career It is MY data and I keep them safely stored on my laptop I don’t want other people to make misuse of my data LERU Launch Event Roadmap towards OA, Brussels, 17 June 2011

  9. 9. Opportunities for data exchange http://www.ode-project.eu/ Data sharing is  smart: it is efficient, avoids duplication, stimulates the advancement of science  about transparency: it allows re-analysis  about enrichment: it adds value to traditional publications  rewarding: requirement for publicly funded research 3 perspectives: researchers, publishers, libraries and data centres LERU Launch Event Roadmap towards OA, Brussels, 17 June 2011
  10. 10. There is no other way E-science is a reality and Open Access goes hand in hand with it Research output needs stable and trustworthy  Access  Storage LERU Launch Event Roadmap towards OA, Brussels, 17 June 2011
  11. 11. Challenges for research libraries/data centres Directly contribute to more efficient/transparent research and education (open scholarschip, open knowledge) Getting involved in the research and education workflows Set new priorities LERU Launch Event Roadmap towards OA, Brussels, 17 June 2011
  12. 12.  Thank you! Questions/comments? LERU Launch Event Roadmap towards OA, Brussels, 17 June 2011
