Open Science represents a new approach to the scientific process based on cooperative work and new ways of knowledge distribution using digital technologies and new collaborative tools. Open Science involves a change of practices in the way scientific results are shared throughout the research cycle and fundamentally relies on a culture change in academic communities.
The 9th UNICA Scholarly Communication Seminar entitled “Academic Libraries & Open Science: how to meet the challenges?” will address the challenges and opportunities for academic libraries in encouraging and achieving this necessary culture change.
We will look into the process of Open Science strategy building in universities and how libraries are involved as partners and drivers. Various actors - researcher, librarian, publisher, research administration officer etc- will present their vision on the role of libraries in Open Science. Participants are also invited to share their experience in dealing with the challenges that Open Science bring in their institution.
Not only case studies on research data management support provided by and for libraries and issues related to the evolution of the scientific publication market, also the the transition to Open Access will be presented. Partnerships and collaboration between libraries and university presses will be addressed in a specific session for which we call for contributions of the participants (cf registration form)
The Seminar provides an opportunity to reflect on and share their experience and views through discussion and exchange in the broad international context of UNICA Universities. As a result, participants will gain insight into the issues at stake related to the role of libraries in developing an Open Science culture in the university. They will benefit from the experience of others in order to bring their own vision of an Open Science strategy to reality in their university.
