Welcome to the

Open Science Community Lisbon

Who we are

We are a National Open Science Portuguese Community, resident in Lisbon, member of a broader worldwide International Network of Open Science & Scholarship Communities (INOSC), sharing the view and supporting the Portuguese Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education, that defined the commitment to open science a national priority. We also stand for the vision of EU´s Open Science Policy, namely the new Open Science Cloud, the FAIR open data principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable data), and the obligation to comply with open access to submit applications to EU research funds.

In fact, open science unites academia members from different disciplines, providing researchers, teachers, and students around the world complete access to high-quality research content in an affordable way, allowing a wider resource capacity and equity around the world.

Our Mission

We are committed to develop a Portuguese national network of researchers, in areas such as health, psychology, architecture, business and economics, law, international relations, history, communication and technologies, working in open science, in close contact with the other open science communities of the INOSC project. This opportunity will increase visibility, bring new chances for national and international recognition, networking and expert contact, that may provide a greater funded projects collaboration and citation impact for published work, promoting the success of publishing in prestigious indexed journals and career development.

Regarding our free access policy to the most recent peer review studies, we also positively contribute to the dissemination of reliable information and to the development of innovation and informed entrepreneurship.
