The Open Science (OS) movement is transforming the research environment and the way researchers advance and share science.
Developed in 2019, UNIL’s OS strategy revolves around the free access to scientific publications (Open Access) and the opening of research data (Open research Data) in order to rise up to the challenge of disseminating knowledge. It aligns with several other recent institutional and cantonal policies and strategies.
In order to implement it, UNIL has defined an action plan based on 5 priority areas:
Each of these 5 axes is broken down into concrete measures to be carried out by different stakeholders.
Completed and ongoing projects include: the creation of a new Open Science web portal ; the elaboration of an UNIL DMP template with the tool DMPonline ; the development of a new directive on Open Access and on Research data ; the institutional repository for publications (SERVAL) ; the creation of a custom wizard for Open Access (Papago) ; the provision of an Open Access editing and publishing portal ; the development of support and training for researchers ; etc.
