Open Science Conference 2018: Going into practice!

Open Science is being put into practice. However, this should not be taken for granted; there are still a few challenges to overcome. At the curtain-raiser of this year’s Open Science Conference, Dr Georg Schütte, State Secretary of the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF), emphasised that the Open Science community will have to be strategic, fast and relevant enough to drive the issue forward. As part of his opening speech on the second day, Professor Dr-Ing. Matthias Kleiner, President of the Leibniz Association, pointed out firstly that Open Science could serve to restore the trust of the civil […]

Opening up science: How the library will become a hub for open innovation and science

Openness in science and innovation can be looked at in two dimensions: On the one hand, the integration of a wide range of knowledge providers into the different phases of the science/implementation process. On the other, the creation of transparency and free access to the results of scientific study. A new initiative from the Stifterverband (Donors Association for Open Science and Innovation) has set itself the goal of no longer seeing open innovation and open science as separated according to economics and science. Instead, it is hoped that the joint debate and the creation of interfaces will make it easier […]


Barcamp Open Science: We need to talk!

Given that open science is a hot topic of conversation, is it also being put into practice? Open science has unfortunately not yet completely caught on, and the oft discussed cultural change is taking time. Often there is a lack of knowledge and orientation in the complex world of open science. That is why it is important to approach researchers, facilitate an exchange about practices and answer their questions. This was the focus of the fourth Barcamp Open Science, organised by the Leibniz Research Alliance Science 2.0 and held at Wikimedia as it was last year. Launched as a pre-event […]


Konkrete Ratschläge für nachhaltigere wissenschaftliche Softwareprojekte

Neben der Umsetzung der FAIR-Data-Prinzipien für Forschungsdaten beschäftigen wir uns an der TIB auch mit der nachhaltigen (Weiter-)Entwicklung, Nutzung und Publikation von Forschungssoftware. Dieser Blogpost stellt einen Zwischenstand des Aufbaus dieser Kompetenzen dar und leitet eine Serie ein, die ähnlich den schon erklärten FAIR-Prinzipien für Forschungsdaten konkrete Beispiele und Handlungsempfehlungen für wissenschaftliche Softwareprojekte aufzeigt.

Research data infrastructure development: The pros and cons of user involvement

FAIR use of data is one of the hot topics on the science policy agenda. To achieve FAIR Data or even publicly accessible data, appropriate research data infrastructures (RDIs) are needed. There are various national, transnational and international developments of information infrastructures or research data infrastructures that are currently being conceptualized, implemented or further emerging. Notable examples are the “National Open Science Cloud” in the Netherlands, the “Open Research Data Infrastructure” in the UK, the “Australian Research Data Cloud”, the German Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) or the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The mantra of user involvement Nowadays, along with […]


Forschungsdaten – Schritt für Schritt. Wohin aber geht die Reise?

Ende Februar hat die Arbeitsgruppe Forschungsdaten der Allianz Schwerpunktinitiative „Digitale Information“ mit der Veröffentlichung eines letzten Diskussionspapiers „Research Data Vision 2025“ ihre Arbeit in diesem Rahmen vorerst abgeschlossen. Weiterlesen …


OpenUP Hub: Werkzeuge und Wissen für die Öffnung des Forschungszyklus

Was ist der OpenUP Hub? Open Science und Open Scholarship haben die Landschaft des wissenschaftlichen Publizierens revolutioniert. Wir brauchen neue Wege für das Überprüfen, Bewerten und Kommunizieren wissenschaftlicher Artefakte. Das EU-geförderte Projekt OpenUP (auf Twitter) adressiert alle zentralen Fragen, die darauf abzielen den Forschungslebenszyklus zu öffnen, wie etwa: Wie können Forschende mit innovativen Methoden über ihre Arbeit kommunizieren? Was ist Open Peer Review? Wie werden Altmetrics produziert und evaluiert? Ziel ist es, den Dialog zu öffnen, um eine offenere, transparentere Wissenschaftslandschaft mit einem Gleichgewicht der Geschlechter zu erreichen, mit einem speziellen Fokus darauf, die Review-, Dissemination- und Assessment-Mechanismen zu verbreiten, […]
