【Purpose of the event】

Open science is a recurring theme in discussions of science policy worldwide, and Japan is no exception. As Japan’s open science strategy is being developed, it is imperative for universities and research institute s to formulate their open access and open data policies, build research infrastructures such as institutional repositories and researcher databases, and provide training help researchers are able to make the most of the opportunities these new platforms offer. This seminar brings together a global publisher (Springer Nature), research tools provider (Digital Science), and researcher identifier plat form ( ORCID) to provide an overview of the changing research environment. Through a dialogue with stakeholders in Japan’s research community, we hope to better understanding of the needs of the academic community and help them to better understand how these tools and platforms can be used to improve the impact of their research.
