We started this survey when we were building our presentation for LIBER Annual Conference 2017 (Patras, Greece):The Empires of the Future are the Empires of the Mind’ [Winston Churchill]: Defining the Role of Libraries in the Open Science LandscapeDr. Paul Ayris, UCL United KingdomDr. Tiberius Ignat, Scientific Knowledge Services, Switzerland
This presentation is about Open Science and includes four parts: open access and new publishing models, research data management, the European Open Science Cloud and citizen science.In its part dedicated to citizen science, our presentation maps existing experiences and recommendations from research intensive organisations and then presents a blueprint for the roles of the library with guidelines for best practice. We would also like to explore the perception (where available, the evidence) of new opportunities and the connection between citizen science and the newly-available technologies.
