The Trinity Task Force on Open Scholarship was created by the Librarian & College Archivist and the Dean of Research with colleagues across the University. One of the first tasks is to define what is meant by Open Scholarship – is it Open Science, (in the broadest sense, incorporating all disciplines), Open Access or Citizen Science?
There has been much recent activity in this area. Internationally, Plan Shas suggested a new model; nationally, NORF (National Open Research Forum) led by the HRB and HEA is working towards a ‘National Statement on the Transition to an Open Research Environment’; from a European perspective, LERU (League of European Research Universities) is creating a very pragmatic Roadmap to Open Science.
As part of collectively figuring out where Trinity wants to be in this landscape (What is or will be mandatory? Where will we lead? Where should we follow and how best should we support our research community?) a series of events under the theme of ‘Unboxing Open Scholarship’ will take place during 2019.
Our first event in February proved to be very beneficial and due to popular demand we have decided to faciliate a repeat of this session on April 23rd in Studio 1, Science Gallery Dublin from 1 - 2.30pm.
13.00 - 13.10: Introductions & Setting the Scene (The Librarian & College Archivist and The Dean of Research)
13.10 - 13:40: Break Out Discussions (facilitated by Prof. Lorraine Leeson, Associate Dean of Research)
13.40 – 14.10: Interactive Q&A
14.10- 14.30: Light Lunch
We look forward to your participation in this collaborative priority setting session. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your views and suggestions for future events.
