League of European Research Universities (LERU)
LERU's publication 'Open Science and its role in universities: A roadmap for cultural change' (2018) discusses the eight pillars of open science identified by the European Commission:
the future of scholarly publishing,
the European Open Science Cloud,
education and skills,
rewards and incentives,
research integrity, and
The publication analyses what the introduction of open science approaches means at university level in each of these eight themed areas and identifies possible benefits and challenges.
For each of the eight open science areas, recommendations about what universities can do are given. They imply a broader supportive environment and productive interactions with external stakeholders, too.
The paper also offers recommendations to open science transition at the institutional level and provides a set of questions which universities can use to measure their progress in implementing open science approaches.
Have a look at other international recommendations and policies on open science and open scholarship
UNESCO’s Recommendation on Open Science presents a very broad view of open science, adding open engagement of societal actors and open dialogue with other knowledge systems to the definition.
Open science is a policy priority for the European Commission and the standard method of working under its research and innovation funding programmes as it improves the quality, efficiency and responsiveness of research.
European Open Science Cloud is built to offer the infrastructure for European research and development activities.
