The GYA continues to make waves in the open science initiative (see news article here) and its Open Science working group will be involved in the upcoming Open Science Conference 2019, the 6th international conference of the Leibniz Research Alliance Science 2.0.
The conference is dedicated to the Open Science movement and provides a unique forum for researchers, librarians, practitioners, infrastructure provider, policy makers, and other important stakeholders to discuss the latest and future developments in Open Science.
The Open Science movement made substantial progress and receives increasing recognition in the research system. The achievements of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and the FAIR data movement are only two popular examples for this development. However, establishing open science practices as natural component of daily scientific working routines is still a great challenge. Furthermore, the open movement is facing negative trends such as ‘predatory science’ that recently gained broader public attention.
Invited as well as carefully selected talks, hands-on reports, and a panel discussion will cover a broad overview on the recent developments. Therefore, we also have a Call for Project Presentations.
The International Open Science Conference is organised by the ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics and the Leibniz Research Alliance Science 2.0.
