Beilstein Open Science Symposium 2019

The What, How and Why of Open Science
A new science eco-system is growing: Open Science. This is based on the conviction that free access to research publications is not only a moral right of citizens but a necessity to allow the maximum use and impact of research. The current publishing system is no longer fit for purpose; too much emphasis is being placed on using publications for evaluation and not enough on the dissemination of new research results. Redressing the balance will not be easy; the publish-or-perish paradigm is detrimental, and could productively be replaced with a more transparent, effective system based on quality and not quantity.
This symposium addresses the interfaces between the laboratory and the new infrastructures currently being set up. The advantages of making data open will be critically reviewed and the development of highly interconnected, collaborative research in data-driven laboratories of the future will be discussed.
The symposium will bring together research scientists, data scientists, publishers, funders and other interested parties to review critically their needs and concerns and discuss how they see the future of Open Science developing.
