NEREUS workshop at LIBER conference 2015:

Open data, restricted data and the library role - Practical cases with regards to economics and the social sciences

Open Science and open data have become hot topics in recent years. Effective research data management is increasingly stipulated by research funders, with infrastructure institutions worldwide building up busily their various services and tools for researchers in order support their research and its research data lifecycle. But how successful are these approaches in their impact to support research? How open could or should data be, and which role(s) can libraries play here to support researchers more effectively? There are joint findings where infrastructure institutions see their expertise within the area of RDM, but there are also apparently differences of developed or established services between various subjects, as well as between various institutions.

Our workshop will attempt to address these issues by focusing on the field of economics, and the social sciences more generally. Organized by NEREUS - the European library network supporting education and research in the social sciences - the first part of the workshop will showcase presentations from a number of notable institutions in order to share their expertise of establishing various services in research data and research data management. They will highlight the various demands researchers have, and the role that libraries already play, or could play, within the area of open as well as restricted research data. In the second half, we would like to involve the workshop participants by discussing different aspects of the topic in small groups.
