Focus on Open Science / Perspective for Libraries


Martin Gasteiner



The purpose of these short interviews is to introduce the concept and values of the Open Science agenda to new communities.

The Interviews can be seen as an introduction to the process of change which Open Science brings. The interview partners will offer  insights on their perspective on research libraries and its projects. 
Open Access, Research Data Management, E-Infrastructures and Citizen Science are deeply interconnected and form a building block that represents a future role for libraries.

Context: Chapter I: Vienna, Citizen Science, Research Data, Access to Knowledge, and Beyond

This one-day seminar will cover critical topics including Citizen Science, Research Data Management and Long-tail Data, and Offsetting Models.
