Description

Please find our proposal for the upcoming 2018 Online Northwest conference below. We would like to propose this topic to be part of a panel or as its own presentation.

As librarians who work in scholarly communications and research data management, we support researchers in their current workflows but are also called upon to promote and often impose change at our institutions. Some researchers adapt to the requirements of open science early and understand the new landscape of publishers, funders and institutions, yet others resist change. We will consider how the norms of a research community influence practice, and how norms of openness and sharing can be shaped to encourage researchers who share in one aspect of their research cycle to share in another. We will explore past examples of change in academic research workflows, suggest emerging trends, and discuss the intersections of open data and open access publishing.

Learning Outcomes

We will consider where past resistance to workflow change has been overcome (for example, the switch from print to electronic journals in science libraries, once controversial, is now commonplace) and what that implies for librarian outreach efforts in data management and scholarly communications today. Attendees will learn about and become conversant in emerging topics such as:

  1. The relationship between traditional scholarly articles and accompanying data

    • A case study offering a link between open data and open access practices
  2. The role of discipline specific preprint servers

  3. New, more inclusive multidisciplinary workflows which challenge traditional boundaries

  4. The increasing push to publish data sets, with accompanying metadata and marked up code

  5. Data as focus or product, rather than as supplement as seen through the rise of the data article

  6. Incorporating reproducibility practices in early phases of research to prepare open materials
