Open Science

Open Citations - TOS

This article is the second post of a series of ten contributions about a better understanding of the different aspects of Open Science. I want to collect material to develop a taxonomy of Open Science (TOS). Here I will outline the rationale and significance behind the Open Citation movement. Citations are the links that knit together our scientific and cultural knowledge. They need to be freely accessible, separated from their sources, such as journals, articles or books, machine-readable, and reusable. They have to be open to facilitate research on their structure and relationships.

Toward a Taxonomy of Open Science (TOS)

This post starts a series of ten contributions about a better understanding of the different aspects of Open Science. I want to collect material to develop a taxonomy of Open Science (TOS). The primary goal of this undertaking is not only to build a hierarchical system where every notion is unambiguous but to develop a heuristic tool useful for further research.

Bibliographic Metadata for your web page

With Web 2.0, we see a radical change in scholarly communication. This transition period poses problems for the researcher as the challenges have multiplied. On the one hand, there is a growing need to be present on different web channels (blog, twitter, youtube, and much more). On the other hand, the more traditional ways of publications in high ranked peer review channels are still prevalent. I present in this post a workaround to fulfill both requirements at a certain level: Embed bibliographic metadata in your web pages so that they can be cited and count as a web publication.

What is Open Science About?

By discussing different definitions of ‘Open Science’ quoted in the literature, the post develops a particular perspective: We argue that openness must include not only scientific findings but also the process of knowledge creation. The article is the first of a series and contrasts a holistic understanding of Open Science with the concepts of eScience, Cyberscience or Science 2.0, Libre Science and Open respective Libre Knowledge.
