In 2019, our Digital Skills for Library Staff and Researchers Working Group embarked on a project to define the skills needed for Open Science, and to align them with LIBER’s 2018-2022 Strategy. The outcome was the Open Science Skills visualisation (see left), which identifies the skills and knowledge needed to practice Open Science effectively.
The graphic is crucial especially since the array of knowledge, skills and competencies needed to practice Open Science (OS) effectively can be daunting for many librarians and researchers (particularly those new to OS concepts and practices). Identifying which skills are needed is the first step for anyone wishing to upskill themselves or others in OS.
On this note, we’re pleased to announce that the visualisation created in 2019 has now been translated into the Greek language (in addition to the English and French versions) and can be found below. The visualisation is licensed CC BY for reuse, and can also be downloaded from Zenodo.
