Providing researchers with the skills and competencies they need to practise Open Science

peter.suber's bookmarks 2017-09-02


"The expected results of the WG on Education & Skills are practical recommendations that can be adopted by policy makers at national, regional and European level and by funders, employers and all researchers. This report opens with the results of the pan-European survey on the perspectives of researchers on Open Science. The report then examines the various skills researchers need to successfully practise Open Science and how to encourage and engage researchers at all levels in Open Science. Existing policy initiatives from the ERA are then aligned with Open Science before the report closes with providing main policy recommendations and recommendations on how ERA policy will be embedded into the Open Science agenda. Finally, we note that even though the focus of the report is on skills for Open Science, the report goes far beyond this and references the whole spectrum of related issues, as without the necessary infrastructure, technical support and institutional mandates, it would be challenging for researchers to practice Open Science, even if the skills training is available."
