Medical Library Pilot Project: Catalyzing a Culture of Open Science
The goal of the project is to stimulate OHSU students? and early career researchers? engagement with open access publishing and data sharing, and to positively influence their attitudes towards and adoption of open science practices. The OHSU Library will address upstream origins of access by influencing how research results are shared. Through a four-part series of round table events and a scholarship program to OpenCon 2015, the Library will provide a forum for addressing and affecting students? and early career researchers? knowledge and esteem for open science practices. Expected outcomes are increased understanding of open access and data sharing, and increased knowledge and use of the Library?s scholarly communication services and resources. Long term, the project is expected to influence higher rates of open access publishing and data sharing on campus and to impact advocacy efforts regionally, nationally, internationally.
