The Open Science Conference 2019 is the 6th international conference of the Leibniz Research Alliance Science 2.0. It is dedicated to the Open Science movement and provides a unique forum for researchers, librarians, practitioners, infrastructure provider, policy makers, and other important stakeholders to discuss the latest and future developments in Open Science.
The Open Science movement made substantial progress and receives increasing recognition in the research system. The achievements of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and the FAIR data movement are only two popular examples for this development. However, establishing open science practices as natural component of daily scientific working routines is still a great challenge. Furthermore, the open movement is facing negative trends such as ‘predatory science’ that recently gained broader public attention.
Within this context, this call invites the research community as well as further important stakeholders of the open science movement to submit project presentations and other contributions covering topics including (but not limited to):
– Recent innovations in infrastructures, technologies, and tools supporting open science practices
– Best practices dealing with open science implementation and education
– Empirical studies and use cases about the application, acceptance, establishment, and improvements of open science practices
– Quality assurance in an open science system, e.g., in the context of ‘predatory science’
