in a few weeks, I will speak at the @RoySocChem "Open Chemical Science" meeting. The originally planned venue has an awesome library. #OpenChem20 1/
@RoySocChem the #OpenChem20 meeting coincides with #BH2020, so it's going to be an extremely busy and long week. There will be a lot of talking about open science chemistry at #openchem20 and a lot of doing open science chemistry at #bh2020 2/
@RoySocChem The full #OpenChem20 meeting consists of three sections: Open Data, Open Access, and Open Source. See… 3/
@RoySocChem I will speak in the Open Access session, talking about some observations I made in my editor-in-chief role at @jcheminf. Each session is further split up three session, and my #OpenChem20 talk is on the 12th:… 4/
@RoySocChem @jcheminf the sessions are free to attend, but you need to register. You can do that here;… #OpenChem20 5/
@RoySocChem The title of my talk is "Open science in an open access world". It will touch on the question if Open Access and Open Science are the same (spoiler: no). Instead, I will focus on the complementary nature. Why a journal article has effectively become an advertisement. 6/
@RoySocChem but advertisements do not fit the inclusiveness idea of open science. With merely an ad, you cannot reproduce the science. Moreover, because we recognize and reward currently only advertisement, it does great damage to open science 7/
@RoySocChem so, in my #OpenChem20 talk I will discuss what a publisher could do to really engage with Open Science and not hesitate with even Open Access. I will not claim @jcheminf has reached that potential yet, but will bring up the following things: 8/
@RoySocChem @jcheminf First and foremost, a scientific journal must recognize and reward all science. There are some things the journal can easily done (and some publishers have). Make *all* research output visible instead of hiding it in supplementary information (*) 9/
@RoySocChem @jcheminf I hope it does not come as a SHOCK to you, but I learned some years ago, that publishers do not guarantee they archive supplementary info. That means, anything you put in the supp info, will likely get lost at some point. 10/

(has this changed? maybe one discussion point?)
@RoySocChem @jcheminf I will discuss some things @jcheminf is doing to implement this recognition and rewarding of other output. Some was introduced by @BioMedCentral a very long time ago. And I will discuss what we could change at journal level. 11/
@RoySocChem @jcheminf @BioMedCentral Second, I will discuss is the urgently needed steps to improve dissemination. If the publisher hasn't figured out an #openaccess based business model yet, the least they can do is participate in @i4oc_org and @opencitations. At least one major chemistry publisher refuses. 12/
@RoySocChem @jcheminf @BioMedCentral @i4oc_org @opencitations But then again, as Clair Castle wonders: "How open are chemists?" (spoiler: not very much; that much we learned with @blueobeliskx). The more interesting questions is, perhaps, are enough chemists open to have a critical mass? (spoiler: yes). #OpenChem20 13/
@RoySocChem @jcheminf @BioMedCentral @i4oc_org @opencitations @blueobeliskx e.g. there are no less than 3 top notch, open science cheminformatics toolkits, there are sustainable huge data repositories. The advantage/problem (depending on your perspective) with #openscience: it doesn't go away; it just accumulates. #OpenChem20 14/
@RoySocChem @jcheminf @BioMedCentral @i4oc_org @opencitations @blueobeliskx I was delighted when David Wild and @csteinbeck founded the @jcheminf a bit over 10 years ago, and if you want #openscience chemistry, @jcheminf is a great place to start. It certainly hasn't solved all issues. 15/
@RoySocChem @jcheminf @BioMedCentral @i4oc_org @opencitations @blueobeliskx @csteinbeck but I hope this talk will give you a good idea of how @rguha, @samofthedamned, @MatthewSmyllie, @10705013, and the recently joined @BZdrazil are bringing more #openscience into an #openaccess world #OpenChem20 16/16

jammer dat de @RathenauNL "Balans van de Wetenschap 2020" nog behoorlijk vol staat (iig in eerste 49 bladzijden) met internationale ranking schetjes. Niet nuttig voor hoe we verder moeten :(
@RathenauNL ik vind de hele karakterisatie van NL in het internationale speelveld wat dun ijs... :(
@RathenauNL paragraaf 2.4 is een mooi voorbeeld daarvan... "state of the art" lijkt direct gekoppeld te zijn aan hoe duur het was... ach... je bent als Nederlander rentmeester of niet, zal ik dan maar denken :(

@pcmasuzzo I think the more important roles of the #openscience "leaders" right now is being vocal about what things are now being sold as "openscience" but are not. (but searching myself too!)
maybe to give some examples: "open access" to COVID19 articles that cannot be redistributed by others --> not #openscience
web scraping content from a website that did not have any license statement --> not #openscience
