Call for Abstracts

The organizing committee of the OIS Research Conference 2021 invites you to join the discussion about the role and value of open and collaborative approaches to generating and disseminating scientific research by submitting an abstract of 250-500 words on your empirical or conceptual work to one of the following conference tracks:

 

Track 1: Open and collaborative approaches along the entire scientific research process and their effects. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • crowdfunding/crowdsourcing science and citizen science
  • open data/material sharing/re-use
  • OIS approaches to translating science into practice, science-industry relations, academic entrepreneurship
  • platforms facilitating OIS

Track 2: Ecosystems and organizational designs facilitating open and collaborative research approaches. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • institutional factors
  • local and national policies
  • intellectual property rights
  • incentive and impact measurement systems

Track 3: Micro-foundations of open and collaborative research approaches. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • scientists’ motives for engaging in OIS
  • skills and capabilities for OIS
  • attitudes and beliefs supporting or blocking OIS
  • characteristics and motives of institutional entrepreneurs

 

Please note that

  • we welcome abstracts on both, early-stage research (research proposals and ongoing projects) and completed projects.
  • participating in the conference either requires getting an abstract accepted for presentation at the OIS Research Conference 2021 or being invited to contribute in an active role as a speaker, discussant, panelists or session facilitator.
  • the paper of the submitted abstract must not have been accepted for journal publication.

 

Researching OIS includes investigating whether, how, and under which conditions applying open and collaborative practices along one or more stages of the scientific research process influences novelty, efficiency and/or impact of scientific research, taking a balanced view that recognizes important contingency factors on the individual, organizational and ecosystem-level.

Participating in the OIS Research Conference is free. The conference officially starts on April 7 at 12:00 and ends on April 9 at 13:00. While the program will take the different time zones into account, we expect participants to be present during the entire time.

Next to the paper presentation sessions, the conference program includes keynotes, an OIS experimentation session, and an OIS debate. In addition, we take our responsibility as conference organizers serious and will organize for virtual social activities, including on April 8 in the evening.
