Science and Knowledge Openness:

Developing Open Science Skills and Competencies in the Academic World

ADBU, the French Association of directors and management staff at academic libraries and documentation centres, and LIBER, the Association of European Research Libraries (Ligue des Bibliothèques Européennes de Recherche), launch a call for proposals to carry out a study titled: ‘Science and Knowledge openness – Developing Open Science Skills and Competencies in the academic world’.

In the context of dynamic and complex change in open research practices and scholarly communication, it is of primary importance to gather intelligence on current and future competencies and skills. This is crucial in order to endorse and support the open science movement and to help improve the way scientific research is conducted and results disseminated. In recent years, a better understanding of the competencies that are necessary for open science has featured high on the agenda of many professional groups and universities. This study is a follow-up to this preliminary work.
