Lightning Talks and Discussion:
Researcher needs, benefits and challenges in Open Science implementations:– Tadej Brezina, TU Wien Abstract: Retrieval of human mobility data is undergoing a dramatic shift, from purely centralized generation to an increasing role of citizen data with seemingly unlimited precision. But what about representation? Mobility data: A balancing act of representation– Associate Prof. Dr. Schnürch, TU Wien Abstract: Making scientific results freely available is surely a noble aim. However, it has to be guaranteed that actions in this direction always take into consideration the needs of researchers as well. The most affected group of people, i.e., the researchers, should be deeply involved in developing open access strategies. Due to the heterogeneity of publishing models in various research fields, a one for all solution is unlikely to be broadly accepted by the scientific community. Open Access and the Plan S: Noble idea, overhasty implementation?– Prof. Dr. Ulrich Frank, University of Duisburg-Essen Abstract: It is high time to stop the insane practise of scientific publishing. Scientific publishers benefit from a business model that is based on a “bizarre triple-pay system” (Deutsche Bank report) – at the expense not only of scientists but of society as a whole. To end this unworthy game, it is not sufficient to blame the publishers. Instead, the scientific community needs to take action to emerge from its self-imposed immaturity, which takes nothing but resolve and courage. High Time For Change– Ines Drefs, GO FAIR International Support & Coordination Office: Developing FAIR solutions for training, technology and academic culture Abstract: Among researchers, funders and infrastructures, there is growing commitment to implementing FAIR approaches. But what is the best way to enhance FAIR research data management skills, which technical support services are needed to generate FAIR data and what kind of support can foster a FAIR data sharing culture?
