  5. 5. Open Science = radical change from the ways in which research is currently conducted and assessed Hugh potential benefts seen! At the same time (too) many pitfalls? 2017 5 Open Science & Activities What to do?
  6. 6. 2017 6 Global Access to Research Software (GARS) ~750 responses of which ~210 each from Ghana, Nigeria & Bangladesh Rest from ~30 further countries Focus on Ghana, Nigeria & Bangladesh Partners: GYA, INASP Image: OpenStreetMap Global survey Time frame 2015-2016 Goals: Quantity and quality of access to software? FOSS alternative to proprietary software? Suggestions to overcome gaps Provoke more targeted studies
  7. 7. The desired research software is highly feld-specifc and diverse Lack of access to software signifcantly afects research content and networks Researchers in developing countries overwhelmingly rely on proprietary software There is a signifcant gap in the uptake and even awareness of FOSS alternatives between developing and developed countries There is an interest in adopting and developing FOSS 2017 7 GARS: Key Findings Need for training and support in software usage, in particular FOSS Series of follow-up questions

  12. 12. Moritz Riede 1 December 2017 12 Open Science Summary Open Science radically changing the ways in which research is normally conducted and assessed Ghana, Bangladesh, Nigeria and potentially many other LMIC relying less on Open Source Software than expected by HIC Dire need for training and support in general software usage identifed in Ghana, Bangladesh and Nigeria Embracing Open Science often still very risky (required time, little reward in evaluation, etc.) Research system only changing slowly, but it seems to be changing There are already many opportunities and exciting projects embracing Open Science, and there will be more!
