What is open source?

the idea of sharing isn't new

it just had to be respecified

BY-NC-SA Emilio Quintana

The Four Freedoms

3. improve the program and release improvements

0. to run the program for any purpose

1. to study how the program works, and change it

2. to redistribute copies

Creative Commons

Open Source

Open Hardware

Open Access

Scientific publication process

competition

not cooperation

driven

scarcity of resources

grant funds

authority-based

individual propositions

often reviewd based on

researcher's standing

replication, not continuing research:

insufficent know-how

migration between research centers almost inexistent

By contrast:

open source world

meritocratic on issue basis

authorities only arbitrary

ability to fork

unlimited resources

very mobile

Open access

Green access

self-archiving

no peer review

often only preprint

not all journals agree

White

no self-archiving

Green

post- and pre- print

Blue

only post-print

Gold

already open

Yellow

only pre-print

Journal classification:

Gold access

normal publication

free to read

expensive

to publish

Revolution in open research?

PeerJ Preprints

PeerJ

sea of knowledge for everyone

peer-reviewed and chosen based on quality, not impact

$99

for life

1 article/year

$199

$299

2 articles/year

unlimited

per researcher

Who reviews the articles?

everyone!

Researcher's github

How can we publish openly?

quality

impact

prestige

access

Suggestion:

mandatory green archiving?

Suggestion:

for

Open Access publications

when awarding grants

bonus points

How to open the research itself?

Open tools, open methods:

Let others replicate!

Publication is only a summary.

Why not share your results?

Let's make it a standard!

Crowdfunding research

When there are no grants...

kickstart the research!

Who?

Why?

How?

Science enthusiasts

Groups of interest

Curiosity

Will to help

Personal interests

Foundations

Where does the research happen?

Research in a

Do-It-Yourself world

hacker & makerspaces

natural refugee from the

stiff rules of the Academy

only for the passionate

experts in their fields,

even without formal education

trying, hacking, breaking,

making

experts, not associates

you don't pay them

you have to interest them

short attention span

and cryptic culture

Out- and opensourcing

many possibilities
