Open scholarship requires the redesign, enhancement or adaptation of e-Infrastructures used for conducting research and disseminating research results. Such e-Infrastructures should cover all functions related to research information (registry, certification, intelligent discoverability, linking, preservation, …) and how open scholarship is applied, and how to facilitate the reproducibility of research results through proper data management practices. The aim of this workshop is to deconstruct Open Scholarship into its basic elements and to see how these match e-Infrastructural components, how to reuse or repurpose existing services and to identify missing ones, how top-down approaches are open by design (and meet the bottom-up initiatives emerging around the globe). This workshop aims to identify strategic directions through concrete recommendations on ways to foster the creation of these elements and their integration towards a seamless environment for open scholarship  that best fits researchers’ needs.

Workshop coordinated by Natalia Manola, Department of Informatics & Telecommunications, University of Athens, Greece.
