Dear Bianca and Jeroen,

Many thanks for your message and your initiative.

I and many professional scientist colleagues are greatly in favour of Open Science, but feel that many of the initiatives proposed come short of a full solution to our problems.

That’s one of the reasons why I launched SciPost (https://scipost.org), in order to provide a true grassroots solution to the problems of scientific publishing, by and for scientists.

I am unfortunately unable to make this Thursday’s meeting, but would be interested in a follow-up meeting as you propose in your email.

All the best,
J-S Caux

Dear Open Science enthusiast,

We are two Open Science advocates, activists if you will, who have been actively involved in charting and interpreting developments in Open Science both nationally and internationally. We have been pondering whether or not to reach out to you collectively, and a few circumstances made us decide to indeed do so.

This Thursday (February 9, at 3PM) a number of Dutch organizations will sign the ‘National Plan Open Science’ during a meeting in The Hague (you can register here<https://m8.mailplus.nl/genericservice/code/servlet/React?wpEncId=jjr8Swy6Gu&wpMessageId=1483&userId=380363&command=viewPage&activityId=test&encId=1> if you want to attend). This is an initiative of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (Sander Dekker) and has been prepared in relative seclusion over the last three months. Apart from the organizations involved a number of others (us included) have been interviewed, or have provided feedback on a 80%-version of the plan after reading the blogposts by Wilma van Wezenbeek<https://tulibrarian.weblog.tudelft.nl/author/wvanwezenbeek/>.

Simultaneously with the signing of the National Plan Open Science, an Open Science platform and website will be launched (https://openscience.nl/).

The National Plan Open Science focuses on more open access, open data and changes in assessment culture. These aims are to be fostered by organizations supporting researchers (funders, institutions, libraries, SURF, VSNU etc.)

We wonder though what you as researchers think of Open Science developments, especially those in the Netherlands. We are witnessing growing interest among researchers in practicing Open Science, which can also be concluded from increasing usage of e.g. preprints, OSF, R, GitHub, open access, Publons and from institutions and funders (EU, NWO etc.) increasingly stressing the importance of Open Science.

We would like to ask whether you would be interested in an open meeting to discuss what you as researchers think priorities for Open Science should be and to what extent these fit into the National Plan.

We contend that the many Open Science activities already undertaken by individuals and research groups could benefit from each other. Therefore, it might be good to informally share Open Science practices that people like yourself already have integrated into their workflow, and perhaps discuss how cross-pollination could take shape.

This can also provide valuable information for future discussions with a broader spectrum of (early career) researchers on the incentives and barriers towards implementation of Open Science.

If there is interest in such a meeting, we will announce details via Twitter and on the Open Science-NL discussion list managed by Egon Willighagen (please sign up to that if you have not yet done so: https://lists.okfn.org/mailman/listinfo/open-science-nl).

Please let us know if you would be interested to meet each other, and if you know of any other researchers we should contact. If any of you are present at the signing this Thursday we could also discuss the idea of a meeting there. Just let us know.

Kind regards, looking forward to meet you,

PS In the run-up to the signing of the National Open Science Plan we are sharing various definitions of Open Science that we collected in our own organization. Find them on Twitter by using the hashtag #openscienceis. Add yours if you will ;-)
