Advancing Open Science Practices: Stakeholder Perspectives on Incentives and Disincentives
September 20, 2019
National Academy of Sciences
2101 Constitution Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20418
This symposium will inform the work of the Roundtable on Aligning Incentives for Open Science
. Key external stakeholders - including researchers, librarians, learned societies, publishers, and infrastructure developers - will share their insights into the current state of the research ecosystem, as well as their visions for what open science can function at scale. We anticipate that these inputs will help the Roundtable further define and prioritize both immediate and longer term actions.
