OPEN SCIENCE POLICIES SEEN FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF RESEARCH COMMUNITIES: THE CASE OF PERU
Keywords:Open science, Researcher’s communities, Peru, Open science policies, Knowledge production
This paper explores the different open science policy effects on the knowledge generation process of researchers in basic sciences: biology, chemistry, and physics, using a qualitative approach with eight semi-directed interviews.
The main perceived effect of open science is access to research inputs, with open access, open research data -especially data reuse and paradata- and code reuse as primary sources. Another issue is the increase of collaboration with other colleagues in terms of the ability to collaborate at a faster speed and also the encouraging the exchange of ideas, i.e., it is a cultural change brought about by the information sharing. Time spent on tasks like cleaning up data and code and the rise of predatory publications are two unfavourable aspects that have been noted. Finally, the issue of science communication as part of the conceptualization of open science is also mentioned by different researchers although this is a topic that remains to be explored.
