Establishing and maintaining an open science infrastructure

Tamsin Burland - Senior co-design Manager in the Research Futures Team, Jisc
Caroline Ingram - Senior co-design Manager in the Research Futures Team, Jisc

This workshop will focus on recent developments in open science and challenges for developing fit for purpose infrastructure at the institutional, national and international level. It will provide an opportunity for research managers to develop knowledge and skills in the area of open science.

To respond to the requirements of open science, research managers need to keep abreast of internal, national and international policies, concordats, directives and mandates.  Within the UK, research funders’ policies, the drive towards responsible metrics and the Open Research Data Concordat are compelling universities to take curatorial responsibility for research outputs.  Similar policies within other countries, as well as cross-border endeavours (eg EU policy; OECD Project Open Science), are providing a global impetus.

In responding to these drivers, how do we ensure the infrastructure is fit for purpose?  Currently, there are pockets of good practice (ORCID, Sherpa Policy Services, European APC monitoring services, and subject and national research data repositories).  Work by bodies such as EOSC, the COAR Next Generation Repositories group, Force11, CNI, CASRAI and ORCID is helping to develop this further. The workshop will provide a forum for the sharing of international good practice and to discuss the challenges involved.
