Session Abstract

The pandemic has proved that open science practices can accelerate medical progress and increase the transparency of scientific findings. Some policies by funding agencies, journals, universities or other academic institutions mandate open science practices so there is a need for researchers to deal with these issues. Libraries have already been supporting open science – especially with regard to open access or research data management by providing publication infrastructures for texts and data, financing of publication fees via publication funds or training/advice – just to name a few activities. Admittedly the concept of open science comprises some more aspects and aims at opening up the whole research cycle. European library associations such as LIBER [] have already made suggestions how research libraries can support their researchers also beyond open access or research data management. But what is the current state of the art with regard to medical libraries? This workshop wants to discuss where medical research libraries stand with regard to services or cooperations. What services are currently offered to support the opening up of the whole or parts of the research cycle? Are medical research libraries cooperating with other units (e.g. IT department) of an institution in order to offer open science support? What are the challenges? Are there best practices that have proved successful?
