The goal of this poster is to contribute to a common understanding of the concept of "Open Science".
Indeed, it is widely recognized nowadays that there is no single, accepted, unified definition of Open Science. This motivates our proposal of an Open Science definition as a political and legal framework where research outputs are shared and disseminated in order to be rendered visible, accessible, reusable.
Our contribution is developed standing over the concepts enhanced by the Budapest Open Science Initiative (BOAI), and by the Free/Open
Source Software (FOSS) and Open data movements. We have elaborated this
definition proposal through a detailed analysis of some selected EC policies and laws as well as of the function of research evaluation practices. The legal aspects considered in our examination include, in particular, the study of the role of licenses in the context of the dissemination of research outputs.

T. Gomez-Diaz is a CNRS Research Engineer at the Gaspard-Monge Computer Science laboratory (LIGM) at the University Gustave Eiffel (Est of Paris), where her mission is, since 2006, to render the research software production visible and accessible. This mission has been recently extended to an Open Science mission.
She has been involved on the PLUME Project (2007–2013), where she has participated to launch and build a national catalogue of (French) research software. She has also participate to propose Software Management Plan tools. In collaboration with Prof T. Recio (University of Nebrija, Spain), she has proposed the CDUR research software evaluation procedure and an Open Science definition as the political and legal framework where research outputs are shared and disseminated in order to be rendered visible, accessible and reusable.
