Like many other events, the first “satellite event” of the Barcamp Open Science had to be moved to digital space due to the global pandemic. Appropriately, the topic “From the crisis of science to science for times of crisis?” was addressed. Contributors showed different examples of where Open Science can help in overcoming global challenges. And the digital space offered the possibility of global participation. In the following, organising team and contributors give some insight into the barcamp.

What is the state of science in Germany these days? The Barometer for the Acadamic World has been dedicated to answering this since 2010, examining areas such as Open Data, Open Access, Peer Review and the question of how trustworthy scientific knowledge actually still is. We took a look at how much Open Science is in the current report.

Through their responsive design, digital Open Science tools promise to enable and simplify collaboration across disciplines, world regions and language groups. But how inclusive are these tools actually globally? Global means that they are equally open in low and middle income countries. Louise Bezuidenhout and Jo Havemann have examined 242 Open Science tools in terms of their geolocalisation, conditions and financing models. They have identified their weaknesses in terms of geographical openness and are developing ideas on how to make the Open Science ecosystem even more inclusive and a truly “unlimited digital commons”.

Open Science has become a central focus of work for the ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics. A key issues paper developed in a participatory manner now sets out how the principles of openness in one’s own work are strategically taken up and how the implementation of open practices among employees is specifically promoted. Prof Klaus Tochtermann, Director of the ZBW, explains the significance of the paper in an interview.

Semantic Publishing is a new open-source software research project contributing to the techstack for the creation of multi-format textbooks. A new generation of textbooks that includes modern Open Science digital objects, has semantic layers for structure and meaning, and packaging for interoperability. We are focusing on a specific book type ‘the textbook’ as an integrated part of MOOCs. The project is based at the Open Science Lab – TIB and contributes to the German consortium of the National Research Infrastructure for Culture (NFDI4Culture).

The authors of the following preprint ‘Open Science Saves Lives’ will hold a ‘Ask me anything’ #AMA session on Reddit next week – 08:00 am Eastern Time (GMT-4:00) on the 11th November.
Open Access journals are known to be accessible to all. But will this be for good, too? An international study on the disappearance of Open Access articles and complete journals from the internet has caused quite a stir in the community. Yvonne Tunnat takes a close look at the study and uses the example of her field of work in digital long-term archiving at the ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics to show what we can do against disappearance.
The focus of the theme is to look at new creative ways researchers are in dialogue, engaging, and co-creating with the wider public.
