[InetBib] CfP: IFLA Preconference on "Library Services for Open Science" (21.08.19 near Vienna)

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

The Science & Technology Section of IFLA invites proposals for papers to be 
presented at the IFLA Preconferene  in Klosterneuburg (near Vienna), Austria on 
August 21, 2019.  The preconference is co-sponsored by the IFLA Evidence for 
Global and Disaster Health (E4GDH) Special Interest Group and supported by the 
Austrian Library Association (VÖB)

Deadline for proposals is: April 1st, 2019.
A full paper is optional.
submit abstracts to 
patrick.danowski@xxxxxxxxx<mailto:patrick.danowski@xxxxxxxxx> AND 

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 
professional.” (Wikipedia)

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.
