PLOS Biology: The Open Knowledge Foundation: Open Data Means Better Science

PLOS Biology: The Open Knowledge Foundation: Open Data Means Better Science | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it

Data provides the evidence for the published body of scientific knowledge, which is the foundation for all scientific progress. The more data is made openly available in a useful manner, the greater the level of transparency and reproducibility and hence the more efficient the scientific process becomes, to the benefit of society. This viewpoint is becoming mainstream among many funders, publishers, scientists, and other stakeholders in research, but barriers to achieving widespread publication of open data remain. The Open Data in Science working group at the Open Knowledge Foundation is a community that works to develop tools, applications, datasets, and guidelines to promote the open sharing of scientific data. This article focuses on the Open Knowledge Definition and the Panton Principles for Open Data in Science. We also discuss some of the tools the group has developed to facilitate the generation and use of open data and the potential uses that we hope will encourage further movement towards an open scientific knowledge commons.

Les aléas de la libération des fruits de la recherche

luiy's curator insight, December 12, 2013 5:36 AM

La plainte de la maison Elsevier aura conduit à la suppression de l'accès libre à des milliers d'articles universitaires partagés par le biais de la plateforme aux 6 millions d'usagers. Cette dernière aura en conséquence averti les chercheurs concernés pour leur signifier le retrait de leurs articles, provoquant un tollé sur les réseaux sociaux. Car bon nombre de ces universitaires ne cherchent pas à vivre de ces publications, mais sont en recherche de visibilité et de possibilités d'échanges avec la communauté.

 

Certains universitaires-auteurs dénoncent en conséquence les pratiques commerciales d'Elsevier, qui pour l'année dernière aura affiché des marges de 38 % pour un bilan de 3,2 milliards de dollars de revenus. Ils en appellent désormais au boycott de la maison d'édition spécialisée, que ce soit pour ce qui touche au travail d'édition comme à l'examen par les pairs.

 

Le fondateur de la plateforme de partage, Richard Price, confie que si par le passé lui et son équipe avaient coutume de recevoir une à deux notifications hebdomadaires de la part de l'éditeur, en revanche, le site web en aurait dernièrement reçu 2800 en à peine deux semaines. Selon lui cet accroissement de mesures de la part de l'éditeur va à l'encontre des aspirations de la communauté scientifique.

 

En réponse, Tom Reller, vice-président et responsable des relations corporate mondiales au sein d'Elsevier, argue que sa maison n'avait pris ses mesures que « de temps en temps » et en visant en premier lieu à  « protéger la qualité et l'intégrité des documents scientifiques ». Selon lui il y aurait par ailleurs « beaucoup d'autres bonnes options pour les auteurs qui veulent partager leurs articles », évoquant l'enseignement et la formation internes, les conférences et autres réunions...
