At the heart of the cycle of research activity, the time when results are published is of prime importance. Thus, in the frame of the Committee for Open Science, for the installation of the National plan, the Publication college will deal with communication and discussion of results, and this in all their forms.
The second commitment of the national plan for open science is an invitation to “structure and, as far as possible, make research data available to all as Open Data”.
The international context of open science evolves extremely rapidly, especially in Europe where this theme is strongly driven by the European Commission and the Council of Europe.
The work of the college will be part of the third axis of the national plan for open science.
The question of evaluation of research and researchers is all the more relevant with the development of open science.
Today, software has become indispensable in all fields of scientific research, as a research tool as well as a research product and an object of research.
In a context where the boundaries between open archives, scientific publishing, research data and research information systems are shifting and porous, a permanent Open Archives group is being set up within the Publications college to propose responses targeting open archives for the development and sustainability of open science.
The Open Scientific Publishing group is a sub-part of the Publication college.
Its objective is to design a generic service for research data for which existing or future disciplinary repositories would not be a suitable solution.
Research project on the transformation of scientific journals’ publication models in the era of open access.
Exploring the possibilities offered by translation technologies to promote multilingualism in scientific production.
Creation and dissemination of a guide to open science for PhD students in all disciplines.
Knowledge and promotion of open science practices within disciplinary communities
The group’s mission is to put forward recommendations for the choice of electronic laboratory notebooks.
To define and implement a new strategy to increase the visibility of French publishers’ policies for the dissemination of articles published in their journals and to accompany the necessary evolution of these policies.
Survey on how digital tools and research data are used in French scientific communities
Prefiguring the organisation of a new collective structure for public scientific publishers who are committed to open science
- To ensure that no researcher or research sponsor is left without a solution to help draft a clinical trial data sharing statement (DSS).
- To promote responsible sharing of data from clinical trials.
Promoting the transparency of individual health studies through a national portal FReSH (France Recherche en Santé Humaine, France Human Health Research)
The group is under the authority of the research data College and the RDA France national hub. Its mission is steering activities linked to certification for “trusted” data repositories and services at the national level
The Jussieu Call for Open science and bibliodiversity was published in early October 2017.
The “Observatory of open science practices” project group’s mission will be to provide a feasibility report on the implementation of a permanent observatory of open science practices.
National web indexing of French public research production
Conditor is a repository that indexes all the scientific output from French higher education and research institutions and laboratories and provides “qualified” metadata via APIs for identified external applications.
The objective of the project is to study the conditions for the production of high value-added TDM services (Text & Data Mining) with semantic-based analysis for researchers.
Project information is available on the Visa TM blog
This project group produces guides to best practices and recommendations for research and higher education actors (researchers, decision-makers, engineers, administrative staff) based on analysis of the national and European regulatory and legislative context for the development of best practices in open science.
