Programme

The concept of Open Access to research outputs, such as journal articles, has been common currency for many years.  More recent thinking has expanded the concept of openness even further, to Open Science (OS), which aims to transform science by making research more open, global, collaborative, creative and closer to society. This shift is potentially extremely important for the development and exploitation of research, and hence for the professionals who support it.

This one-day workshop gives an overview of developments in openness in Open Science, Open Data, Open Access and Open Monographs, framed within the context of a disruptive technology.  Delegates will be encouraged to raise questions and debate issues of immediate concern throughout the day.

Programme

The programme includes:

  • Disruptive technologies – examples, definition (following Christensen) and discussion
  • Open Science – what it encompasses; the rationales given for instance by the OECD for its development
  • Open Data – what it is; how it is managed; policy development
  • Open Access – definitions (Green, Gold, gratis and libre, toll access), brief history, policy development; costs; obstacles and practicalities
  • Open Access scholarly monographs - the new frontier?  Open Access in STM subjects is well established, but the Humanities and Social Sciences now stand to benefit greatly too
  • Open Access as a disruptive technology?  Implications for the future - our world turned upside down
