Past 10 november 2015 I was participated in the euroCRIS membership meeting in Barcelona. It was a really interesting meeting. There, I made a speech called: Research information systems: what’s new?
In my presentation, I talked about that nowadays there is a new scenario, a new paradigm about research, where all is open, and I asked, how did we get here? I talked about that traditionally, to make public a new discovery, could take a lot of time, from 6 months to 1 year or more. And that this is a valid but also an expensive system for several years and that actually, there is a different scenario where immediacy is more relevant.
Also talked about this globalized world, where new forms of doing research have appeared. That researchers must take into account new forms of doing their research. And that this is the so-called Open Science or Open Research, putting, more than ever, the Researcher in the spotlight.
