 Towards open science: LIBER 2015 Call for papers

 *“Open Science broadly describes science carried out and communicated in a
manner which allows others to contribute, collaborate and add to the
research effort, with all kinds of data, results and protocols made freely
available at different stages of the research process”* – Introduction to RIN
/ NESTA Open Science case studies
 Foundations of open science

Dan Gezelter of OpenScience.org defines open science as underpinned by the
following broad principles:

·         Transparency in experimental methodology, observation, and
collection of data

·         Public availability and reusability of scientific data.

·         Public accessibility and transparency of scientific communication.

·         Using web-based tools to facilitate scientific collaboration.

 The library role in open science

It is clear that libraries have a key role in enabling open science
 and apparent that libraries will have to show leadership, adapt how they
measure impact and deliver services, and partner with other stakeholders in
order to fulfil this role.

This conference invites papers that address these issues, explore the
movement towards open science practice and policies, and provide examples
of how libraries are acting as enablers and identifying and addressing key
challenges related to implementing open science principles.

 *We invite submissions of:*

·         Research papers presenting theoretical solutions, but with a
clear  illustration on how these solutions can be applied

·         Position papers presenting opinions on some aspect of practice,
or describing work that is still in progress, but sufficiently mature to
warrant attention

·         Experiences and case studies specifying requirements, challenges
or opportunities

·         Best practices
