“The role of institutional libraries and of publishers continues to evolve along with the changing landscape of research dissemination. Open access publishing has paved the way for a broader open science or open research landscape that emphasizes the importance of sharing research elements across the scientific discovery process. Sharing across the lifecycle supports greater transparency, assists in reproducibility and replicability, and can speed up the dissemination of important research outcomes. In the US, an increasing number of policies, practices, and guidelines are helping to encourage openness from data to code to publication. Institutional libraries are responding by providing leadership in the open science environment through activities like expanding support for grant compliance, helping facilitate data reuse, and working with organizations to build the necessary infrastructure to facilitate an open research process. Publishers are likewise exploring new models, technologies, and processes to support greater openness and to shift away from a pay-to-read model. F1000’s innovative publishing model, for example, is designed to fully promote open science practices by requiring FAIR compliant data with submission, allowing for a broad variety of publication types beyond standard journal articles, and using open community peer review to validate research. In this panel discussion, representatives from State University of New York at Stony Brook, Library Journal, F1000 and Taylor & Francis will convene for an interactive discussion about the ways in which institutional libraries are collaborating with partners to advance open science principles, rigor and reproducibility, and research innovations.
