Take part in the survey on Open Science practices in HEP

Up to 90 percent of journal literature in the field of high-energy physics is published through open access (since January 2018), but free and open access to the papers is not enough for Open Science. Research data, code and documentation each play a part in increasing the transparency and reusability of research output. How does the HEP community feel about the openness of these “nontraditional” research outputs? How about the data and code sharing practices and tools?

Chip in to build a complete picture of HEP scientists’ sharing practices and preferences, and learn what’s shaping the landscape of open science! Results from the survey will be used to improve INSPIRE, the HEP literature database, by providing insight into the new developments in how physicists communicate and share their work. This is especially relevant for the new fields of data and code sharing. All HEP physicists are invited to take part the survey, so click to participate! Please enter your responses by May 18.

The survey has been designed by CERN doctoral student studying library and information science at the iSchool at the University of Sheffield as part of the PhD project. The survey has been approved by the iSchool’s Research Ethics Committee.
