Publié le 12 juillet 2016, par Thérèse Hameau

On October 7, 2015, SPARC, along with the Wellcome Trust, PLOS and the National Institutes of Health, convened a group of research funders, publishers, and organizations from the U.S. and Europe to explore concrete strategies for ensuring that their respective policies around sharing research outputs be as closely aligned as possible. The aim of this gathering was for a critical mass of participants to agree to a set of actions, that if committed to and implemented by our respective organizations, would create real change towards realizing the goal of open science.


At the end of the convening, a number of concrete “next steps” were agreed to by the participants. They include :

  1. Endorsing a set of immediate, practical next steps that funders could take with regard to data citation and the machine-readability of their data policies (and eventually, for data management plans themselves).
