Pushing the Boundaries of Open Science (Special STI and Marie Curie Library Seminar)


  • 1. Kamran


CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is the world's largest high-energy physics laboratory. The frontier research conducted at CERN has long embodied the values that have more recently come to be defined at the Open Science movement, which describes research and development that is collaborative, transparent and reproducible and whose outputs are publicly available (EU, 2018). Indeed these values were enshrined in 1953 in CERN’s founding Convention, which states that “… the results of its experimental and theoretical work shall be published or otherwise made generally available,” providing the organization with an early Open Science manifesto. This presentation will provide an overview of CERN’s activities to increase the accessibility, reuse and reproducibility of research in high energy physics, with a particular focus on the SCOAP3 program, which has transitioned 90% of literature in the discipline to Open Access, and a range of additional services, particularly relating to Open Data (CERN Open Data, REANA, CAP and Zenodo).


Delivered online. Organized by the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics
