During the conference we like to explore which services libraries can offer to
support Open Science.
“Open science is the movement to make scientific research, data and
dissemination accessible to all levels of an inquiring society, amateur or
Open Science continues to become increasingly important for researchers as
different funding agencies, like the European Union, start to require open
access for research results.
Beyond Open Access and Open Research Data, other fields related to Open
Science, like Open Methodology and Open Peer Review, are getting more
attention. Therefore, the information management needs of researchers are
changing. Libraries serving scientific organizations and patrons, are beginning
to explore what new services to develop in order to support researchers in this
new open environment. This new openness also has the potential to increase
diversity and inclusion in research, addressing ethical issues relating to
infrastructure and skills in the global south, and increasing the translation
of research in global settings.
At the meeting in Austria we would like to focus on library services which go
beyond the classical fields of Open Access and Research Data.
This could be the building of new types of networks, successful training
measure for scientist and adoption of new tools. We are looking for innovative
ways in which libraries are developing services to foster open science.
