    Encouraging Open Science »literacy«: Four years of Focus on Open Science workshops

    Open Science is designed to make scientific processes more transparent and results more accessible. Overall, open science represents slow, but long-term changes to fundamental concepts of scholarly communication. Nowadays, many funders encourage, require, or reward some of open science practices. At the same time, in many cases funders do not provide comprehensive information or infrastructure support in this field. Consequently, researchers are faced with lack of skills in this field, which could result in frustrations and distrust in new practices in this field. Academic libraries are strongly involved in the transition processes of changing concepts of scientific communication. However, even librarians often do not have sufficient skills and expertise to address complex problems in this field. Therefore, in the CTK, we decided to provide a range of educational events for librarians and other stakeholders in the development of scientific communication to inspire the best possible practices in this field. In cooperation with Scientific Knowledge Services, we have attracted numerous international speakers in Ljubljana, who presented various thematic aspects and solutions in the field of open science in developed research and educational environments. The importance of these meetings is substantial. After four years, we can observe the results of these meetings also in the applicative forms of various open science activities.
