“New Landscapes on the Road of Open Science: 6 Key Issues to Address for Research Data Management in the Netherlands”
The road to Open Science is not a short one. As the chairman of the Executive Board of the European Open Science Cloud, Karel Luyben, is keen to point out, it will take at least 10 or 15 years of travel until we reach a point where Open Science is simply absorbed into ordinary, everyday science.
Within the Netherlands, and for research data in particular, we have made many strides towards that final point. We have knowledge networks such as LCRDM, a suite of archives covered by the Research Data Netherlands umbrella, and the groundbreaking work done by the Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences.
The authors of this blog post [Marta Teperek, Wilma van Wezenbeek, Han Heijmans, Alastair Dunning] have put together six areas that, in their opinion, deserve attention on our Open Science journey.
The six areas discussed are:
- Cultural and Technical Infrastructure for Confidential Data
- Encouragement for discipline-specific guidance and standards
- Creating a Web of Incentives
- Building Capacity for Training
- Transparent Governance / Coordinated Action
- Open Infrastructures for Research
