Engaging the Research Community towards an Open Science Commons

Developing an Open Science Commons
Open science refers to the opening of the creation and dissemination of scholarly knowledge towards a multitude of stakeholders, from professional researchers to citizens. This has become a high priority concept in the agenda of policy makers and research organisations, and we need to understand what are the implications for those serving science. Opening the process of creation and dissemination of science requires changes in the way resources are shared and governed. There is clear evidence that that such resources (e.g., physical, digital, intellectual) could generate the best value when managed as commons. The goal of this presentation is to explain how this can be achieved and provide a view on how infrastructure resources needed to support open science can be integrated into an open science commons.
