We have been hard at work on the next phase of our solutions-focused efforts to increase adoption of and investment in open infrastructure. Today, we are happy to share an update about our work so far to develop IOI’s new tool, Infra Finder

To recap our path: After collectively developing and launching the Catalog of Open Infrastructure Services pilot project in 2022 and learning from our community, the whole of IOI realized we needed to re-envision what outcomes we could affect and rethink what solutions could look like. From a policy standpoint, we wanted to further the aims of UNESCO’s Recommendation on Open Science, which sets an intention that “access to scientific knowledge should be as open as possible” and emphasizes: “The world needs open science now.” We also knew that infrastructure and information and communications technology is a key part of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 9. In addition, the US government published the Nelson memo, which calls for an update to public access policies for Federal funders “no later than December 31st, 2025.” In looking to prior and existing efforts, we consulted and sought inspiration from works including the Principles of Open Scholarly Infrastructure, the Scholarly Communication Technology Catalogue, and the HELIOS Scholarly Communication Infrastructure Guide.
