On Friday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. CET, Sharifa Bok Kassem Zagmouri, full professor of information and communication sciences at Claude Bernard Lyon 1 University, gave a lecture on Open Science in person at the University of Grenad.
The lecture, “Open Science, Science Beyond Growing Up” is part of his short research excursion at the University of Granada this week. Sharifa Boukasem Zagmouri briefly introduced Open Science by addressing Arqus’ Open Situation Paper. As universities face digital transformation, open science plays an important role. However, the idea that some have described as a “buzzword” is much older. Its use dates back to the Enlightenment and relates to the social norms of science as defined by Robert K. Merton. The aim of the presentation was to understand the origins of open science and to explain the numerical mechanisms that are embedded in it today. Based on the “Arqus Open Science” staff, the presentation highlighted the extent to which openness is a topic of consensus among societies and institutions rather than a political one.
This short-term commute gave Sharifa the opportunity to organize several meetings with her colleagues from Granada. They can then release a publication on open access and open science. Sharifa says when asked why she would suggest this type of peer visitation. This experience can also be a springboard for further collaborations through a national research project (ANR – France) and future exchanges between master’s programmes.
Sherifa Boukasem Zaghmouri is a university professor in media and communication sciences at Claude Bernard University and a researcher in the ELICO laboratory. Based on the theoretical framework of the cultural and creative industries, his work analyzes changes in peer-to-peer scholarly communication, towards open and collaborative models. New forms of scientific research production, circulation, evaluation and legitimization constitute the main axes of his research. In this field, qualitative and bibliometric approaches have been used. Sharifa Boukasem Zaghmouri is her foundation’s Open Science Project Director, COSO member, and co-pilot of the GT Evaluation DORA.
