EORI Bulletin

12/01/2021

We’re back after the festive break!

EORI keeps an eye on changes in the fields of Open Science, FAIR data principles, and others, and directs any interested parties to important updates:

  • PlanS comes into effect this month! This means that research funded by cOAlitionS research funders must be made open access immediately upon publication. Fingers crossed this will make a material impact. Journals are making themselves ready, e.g. Elsevier has made 160 of their journals PlanS-compatible. A bit more detail here.
  • Here is a nice 4-page read “Practical & Ethical Reasons for pursuing a more open science.” The author is a mathematician, so the article is framed from that point of view, but his logic & reasoning still applied to other fields of science. The author goes into ethics, and the ethics of the current research information system are discussed in more detail here.
  • The Online Computer Library Centre (OCLC) has summarised the last 6 years of meta-data into a report to describe how meta-data has changed and their thoughts on the ‘next generation’ of metadata. Interesting read!
