EOSI keeps an eye on changes in the fields of Open Science, FAIR data principles, and others, and directs any interested parties to important updates. This issue, we’d like to highlight:

  • UNESCO has launched a consultation, as they intend to ‘build a coherent vision of Open Science’. Could be interesting to see how it develops, and worth chipping in with your opinion!
  • The spread of Coronovirus is causing people to highlight the downsides of closed science, and has prompted calls – from scientists & non specialists – for & support of open science. Bit of a silver lining to a very dark cloud. E.G. here, here, here, here.
  • A bit of a longer read, but Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) Europe have released their 5th analysis report on open science policies in Europe. A longer read, with some of it in depth, but very informative!

The best way to get more updates is to follow EOSI on Twitter. Additionally, if you’re interested in getting involved in EOSI then please send an email to Ben Thomas at ben.thomas@ed.ac.uk, or message them on Twitter.
