EU action plan for Open Science

Die Niederlande hatte angekündigt sich im Rahmen ihrer EU-Ratspräsidentschaft besonders des Themas Open Science anzunehmen.
Am Ende einer Konferenz in Amsterdam wurde nun ein “EU action plan for Open Science” angekündigt. Drei Ziele wurden dafür formuliert:

1. Full open access for all publicly funded scientific publications by 2020.
2. Open data – the sharing and re-use of data – as the standard for all publicly funded research.
3. More open science, which will maximise its effectiveness and its impact on society and the economy

Begleitend dazu hat ScienceEurope ein Briefing Paper on Open Access Business Models veröffentlicht. In der der Pressemitteilung dazu heißt es:

“The Dutch Presidency has made Open Access one of its main priorities and wishes to garner consensus around tangible actions necessary to irreversibly advance the transition to Open Access to scientific publications.
This needs visionary and courageous decisions by policy makers in the coming months. If these decisions are to have real impact and to support Open Science, then decision makers need to be in possession of the latest and most reliable information about what is going on in the Open Access publishing market. They need to know the financial, scientific and other implications of some of the ongoing trends and existing business models.”
