Constructing bibliodiversity project group
The Jussieu Call for Open science and bibliodiversity was published in early October 2017.
With its eight recommendations, it claims that advances towards open science necessarily require support for the diversity of actors in scientific publishing – aka bibliodiversity – at all stages of the publishing workflow. This implies in particular the coexistence of various business models and excludes the domination of a single model. But time has come to work on the practical implementation of bibliodiversity and to take into account the diverse cultural and publishing practices prevailing among researchers, disciplines, institutions and countries. This can only happen at a European and international scale.
The creation of a project group entitled “Building Bibliodiversity” within the Committee for Open Science and directly under the responsibility and permanent monitoring of the Publications and International Colleges meets these two objectives. It will take advantage from the wealth of skills gathered within these two colleges and the committee as a whole, but also from the contribution of external expertise.
The duration of the mission of this project group is nine months and it will submit a final report on its work together with a shorter document of recommendations. This report will be presented during a CoSO Tech session with proposals for communication with the institutions and researchers. A bimonthly progress report will be made to the CoSOTech and the two colleges.
- Identify principles and supporting criteria to channel investments into entities and platforms enabling open access, bibliodiversity, innovative publishing and shared development;
- List national, European and international initiatives and infrastructures which foster Open Science based on these criteria (goal, type, status and hosting country) ;
- Clarify the concept of Fair Open Access (potentially with a quantified evaluation) as "we" understand it (i.e. based on criteria like viability, sustainability, independence, stakeholder control, etc.);
- Establish an operational funding system to support planned actions based on a foundation funded in part by savings made on subscriptions as a result of current and future negotiations;
- Make an effective contribution in the international debate on bibliodiversity currently underway in Europe and Latin America in particular. This requires regular exchanges with open science stakeholders in these regions of the world. The group will develop partnerships to assess the diversity of academic contexts and cultures and take up opportunities to carry out joint projects to promote bibliodiversity at the international and foremost European levels.
Jean-François Lutz, curator of libraries, is responsible for the “digital library” of the University of Lorraine.
As a member of Couperin’s professional office from 2006 to 2012, he was the initiator and moderator of the working group on open archives and was the OpenAIRE project manager for France. From 2008 to 2014 he was a member of the SPARC Europe board.
He is currently a member of the Scientific Publishing Monitoring Committee responsible for monitoring and evaluating the plan to support scientific publishing, as well as conducting studies.
