Tips

How to make your work open access

Recommended Listening

The case of open science - The present global knowledge system is good at generating knowledge, but poor at sharing it.

Homophily and the digital 'echo-chamber' - Are we really as open to new ideas and voices as we think we are?

Congress Unplugged! Set the default to Open - There is a growing movement to change the lack of taxpayer’s access to scientific research by supporting policies that require all published results to be made available to the public, free, online as soon as possible. This talk by Heather Joseph will outline actions you can take to get involved and make taxpayer-funded science openly.

Quotes

If you are not accessible you are not relevant.
- NetHui Comment

If you cannot open it, you do not own it.
- Open Innovation

Open means that there is no prejudice against any kind of user, anywhere, any time. Open means that commercial use is allowed, in advance. Open means that new works, new research, new products are allowed, in advance. Open means following the Open Definition.

Here’s the Definition. It’s short and sweet: “A piece of data or content is open if anyone is free to use, reuse, and redistribute it — subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and/or share-alike.”
- John Wilbanks, Making Sure “Open” Stands for Something

The opposite of 'open' isn't closed. The opposite of open is 'broken.’
- John Wilbanks, cited by Cable Green, The Obviousness of Open Policy (Poster) @cgreen
http://www.slideshare.net/cgreen/sloan-the-obviousness-of-open-policy

Translating: The opposite of 'open' isn't closed. The opposite of open is 'broken.’

Spanish: Lo contrario de "abierto" no es cerrado. Lo contrario de abierto es "quebrado".
German: Das Gegenteil von 'offen' ist nicht geschlossen. Das Gegenteil von offen ist "gebrochen."
Swedish: Motsatsen till "öppen" är inte stängd. Motsatsen till öppen är "sönder".

http://ukwebfocus.wordpress.com/2014/03/14/guest-post-why-the-opposite-of-open-isnt-necessarily-broken/

I was not in Scotland but thanks to the miracle of webcasting, I heard Cable Green say "The opposite of 'open' isn't closed. The opposite is 'broken'" quoting John Wilbanks. The quip resonated with the crowd and with me. I knew it would be a conversation starter in Mexico where I had been working if I could just translate this properly into español.
How do we get people started on the journey toward being more open, more caring, more sharing?
The practice really is as simple as posting information where people can find and use it ... but why is this so difficult for others?
We are working against the clock to conserve the world's biodiversity or at the very least to slow down the rampant destruction. But are our leaders aware of Creative Commons? Everything I read from the UN's Environmental Programme seems to be marked 'All rights reserved.'
I work with educators, conservationists and travel pros around the world, but most expect people to somehow find their work, find their research, find their tours by some set of magic footprints that lead to treasure.
I have no problems saying that our systems are broken and that by being more open, more caring, more sharing is the solution. The trick is finding a way of saying this without being insulting or taking on a holier-than-thou persona. We are in this together and it's through humility that we learn how much we have yet to learn together.

My only obligation is this: to be transparent - Pablo Neruda

Openness is not the end. It's the beginning



The recent generations have been bathed in connecting technology from birth, says futurist Don Tapscott, and as a result the world is transforming into one that is far more open and transparent. In this inspiring talk, he lists the four core principles that show how this open world can be a far better place.


Open Source

Open Standards

OpenStand is a global community that stands together in support of The Modern Paradigm for Standards – an open, collective movement to radically improve the way people around the globe develop, deploy and embrace technologies for the benefit of humanity.
