The 3rd Open Science Conference will bring together policy makers, representatives of intergovernmental organizations, researchers, scholars, librarians, publishers and civil society. Under the theme Accelerating the Sustainable Development Goals, Democratizing the Record of Science they will engage in a dialogue about the opportunities and challenges of practicing open science and explore initiatives, themes and perspectives into the open scientific method and the digital scholarly communications cycle.
Under the three main themes
- Equity in open scholarship,
- Reforming scientific publishing, and
- Strengthening the science-policy-society interface
conference registrants will be able to participate in discussions about the present and future of open science practices for the SDGs and reaffirm that scientific progress and its applications are for the benefit of all.
The roundtable discussion among 19 eminent personalities in open science that preceded the Library’s 2019 Conference resulted in a document of principles elaborating on the necessary elements needed for the creation of a Global Open Science Commons for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the 3rd Open Science Conference, we will also revisit this idea and the way forward.
