TDM: unlocking a goldmine of information

Organisers: OpenMinTeD: Natalia Manola and Stelios Piperidis /Athena Reseach & Innovation Centre, Thomas Margoni /Univ. of Glasgow, Martine Oudenhoven/LIBER
Duration: 3 hours
Text and Data Mining (TDM)  is a natural ‘next step’ in open science. It can lead to new and unexpected discoveries and increase the impact of publications and repositories. This workshop showcases examples of successful TDM and infrastructural solutions for researchers. We will also discuss what is needed to make most of infrastructures and how publishers and repositories can open up their content.

Towards a Policy Framework for the European Open Science Cloud: the EOSC pilot perspective

Organisers: Prodromos Tsiavos - Athena Research and Innovation Centre, Matthew Dovey - Jisc, Simone Sacchi - LIBER
Duration: 1.5 hours
The workshop provides a hands on approach in relation both to the understanding of the EU open science policies and their application by related stakeholders. It  will seek to explore, propose and test different aspects of policy documents created by and for different types of stakeholders (e.g. RPOs, funders, policy makers etc) in the context of EOSC. Drawing on the work by the EOSC policy work, the workshop invites participants to bring their own policies or work on model policies to develop a simple but comprehensive policy document tailored to their needs and conforming to the EU policy and legal framework.
It is useful to the broader Open Science community as it brings together services, stakeholders and policies and allows for a better understanding of the interaction between different constituencies.

Open Metrics on the Cloud

Organisers: Mappet Walker - Frontiers, Jochen Schirrwagen  - University of Bielefeld, Dimitris Pierrakos - Athena Research and Innovation Center, Ross MacIntyre - Jisc IRUS-UK, Joseph Greene, University College Dublin
Duration: 1.5 hours

Impact metrics have a strong influence on the scientific community, affecting the assessment of institutions of higher education and research as well as decisions concerning who gets promoted or hired, who receives grants, and who publishes where. In this situation, it is essential that the methods used to calculate metrics should be transparent, and reproducible and that their integrity should be auditable, and beyond question. This workshop will discuss the limitations of current systems and platforms, presenting a use case from Usage Statistics platform, and the recommendations of creating an open platform for Impact Data.

How FAIR friendly is your data catalogue?

Organisers: Rafael Jimenez - ELIXIR, Donatella Castelli - CNR, Natalia Manola - Athena Research & Innovation Centre, Carole Goble - University of Manchester
Duration: 3 hours
 
This workshop will build upon the work planned by the EOSCpilot data interoperability task and the BlueBridge workshop held on April 3 at the RDA meeting. We will investigate common mechanisms for interoperation of data catalogues that preserve established community standards, norms and resources, while simplifying the process of being/becoming FAIR. Can we have a simple interoperability architecture based on a common set of metadata types? What are the minimum metadata requirements to expose FAIR data to EOSC services and EOSC users?

Introduction to responsible research and innovation - the citizen science aspect

Organisers: Ellinogermaniki AgogiCulturePolis
 
Duration: 1.5 hours
Responsible Research & Innovation (RRI) is a way of researching that takes a long-term perspective on the type of world in which we want to live. It can strengthen research projects by emphasising openness, transparency, diversity, inclusiveness and adaptation to changes. Essentially, RRI aims to create collaborative frameworks in which citizens engage with scientists, entrepreneurs, decisions makers and other groups to work towards sustainable, ethically acceptable and socially desirable outcomes.

Open Science Monitor

Organisers: OpenAIRE, EOSCpilot, Jisc, DANS
Duration: 1.5 hour
Which are the measurable components of Open Science? How do  we build a trustworthy, global open science monitor?  This workshop will discuss a potential framework to measure Open Science, including the path from the publishing of an open policy (registries of policies and how these are represented or machine read), to the use of open methodologies, and the opening up of research results, their recording and  measurement.

Organising High Quality Research Data Management Services for Open Science

Organisers: Peter Wittenburg (RDA/ MPCDF), Daan Broeder (EUDAT/ Meertens Institute),  Ellen Leenarts (EUDAT/ DANS),  Maggie Hellstrom (ICOS/ ULUND),  Stefano Nativi (RDA/ CNR),  Rebecca Grant (RDA/ National Library of Irekland),  Simone Sacchi (RDA/EUDAT/LIBER)
Duration: 1.5 hours
Open science needs high quality data management where researchers can create, use and share data according to well defined standards and practices. this is one of the pillars of Open Science. In the data management landscape we find quite a few organisations that aim at achieving this, however to get it right, a collaboration is called for where all can play a suitable role and present this in a consistent way to the researcher.
The proposed workshop brings together representatives of standard organisation (RDA), eInfrastructures (EUDAT) and Libraries (LIBER) that together can organise the high quality data management for research.

Open science policy aspects in the context of EOSC governance framework

Organisers: Matthew Dovey, JISC, Jessica Parland-von Essen, CSC
Duration: 1.5 hours
The challenge of EOSC governance is how to construct a framework allowing varied and disparate stakeholders to work together. The  EOSCPilot project has established a Governance Development Forum (EGDF) so that all stakeholders can contribute to the development of a governance framework to inform the establishment of EOSC and its governance structure.  In this workshop we will discuss how Open Science should manifest in the EOSC governance framework.

Innovative dissemination practices and altmetrics

Organisers: OpenUP
Duration: 1.5 hrs
The workshop discusses the implications of open science for the research workflow in terms of dissemination and assessment. We will give concrete guidance to stakeholders on these topics, present best practice examples and give room for discussion and suggestions by the audience.

Building a global knowledge commons - ramping up repositories to support widespread change in the ecosystem

Organisers: Kathleen Shearer, Eloy Rodriguez - COAR (Coallition of OA repositories)
 
Duration:  3 hours
Distribution of control of scholarly resources (pre-prints, post-prints, research data, supporting software, etc.) and scholarly infrastructures is an important principle which underlies or vision for the future of scholarly communication. In the spirit of this conference, the workshop will showcase the conceptual model for this vision, as well as the role and functions of repositories within this model.
