We will view a recorded conference presentation, “Implementing Open Science Principles through Research Partnerships,” and have some time for discussion afterward. The presentation is from the September 2019 NISO Virtual Conference, Sustaining Openness: Ensuring the Long Term Viability of Open Science, OER and More. This Open Access Week event is hosted by the JMU Libraries’ Council on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the JMU Libraries’ Scholarly Communication Steering Committee. Please contact Liz Thompson (thomp3ea@jmu.edu) or Alyssa Valcourt (valcouah@jmu.edu) with questions.

Conference presentation description by the presenter, Judy Ruttenberg:

Through its Scholars and Scholarship program, the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is working on several initiatives to apply the recommendations in the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s “Open Science by Design.” These involve critical partnerships with scholarly and learned societies; academic leadership, through the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU); and within institutions to advance research integrity as scholarship and information transform. This talk will highlight the principles behind these efforts, and the opportunity presented by bringing together scholars, societies, research libraries, library publishers, university presses, and investors. Ultimately, the value of research is judged on its integrity, its dissemination and reuse. As collaborative partners, research libraries are integral to knowledge creation and barrier-free and enduring access to information. The paper highlights emerging roles and types of institutional partnerships as research libraries transform with the changing conditions of scholarship.
