The session will address the important question how to enable effective Open Science practices among researchers within a multidimensional approach. Researchers are not the only actors in science and knowledge production, they need a strategic framework on which they will align practices and choices and a legal framework to specify ethical behaviour without affecting the private sphere of individuals by data sharing. In addition, without infrastructure and technologies it will not be possible to implement the appropriate systems for opening up research. It is important to take into account all strategic, legal and technical dimensions.
1. Introduction (André Hoffmann, OpenAIRE)
2. Open Science Strategic Perspectives in the HES-SO Network Context (Christine Pirinoli, HES-SO)
Abstract: The speaker will contextualise the HES-SO Open Science view which is based on the dissemination, the exposure and the promotion of applied science outcomes using Open Science practices.
3. Multidimensional approach towards Open Science (Basma Makhlouf Shabou, HES-SO)
Abstract: This talk draws the main axes of the multidimensional approach enabling the Open Science practices in Swiss HEs. First, it attempts to evoke the legal and normative aspects of the different stages and tasks of the life cycle of research data management. In this respect, the basic principles of data processing and Archival Science and relevant initiatives will be highlighted. Second, methodological and ethical considerations and their role in guaranteeing the quality of shared data and results of scientific research will also be discussed with some applicable tools. The whole will be linked to the information culture which differs according to the type of institution, and/or the data, and/or the nature of the research disciplines.
4. IT for Open Science. Project EnhanceR - Enabling Open Science, Shareable, reproducible research containers (Sergio Mafioletti, EnhanceR)
Abstract: Reproducibility of data analysis is one of the cornerstones of Open Science, as data must be both available and reliable to support effective research. EnhanceR is a national initiative that develops and promotes services to help researchers making their research and results effectively reproducible. In this short presentation, we will show practices and tools to support this, such as orchestration of containers and validation of works-flows.
