Transitioning to an Open Research Environment: Responding to NORF
Thursday, 15 April 2021, 1 – 2pm
A lunchtime forum for Trinity researchers at all levels in the Faculty of Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities to engage with the NORF proposal during its consultation phase, which ends on 7 May, with a view to identifying shared concerns that should be incorporated in our institutional feedback. Speakers will include Prof Dan Geary (History and Humanities) and Prof Ronan Lyons (Director, TRiSS) and the discussion will be chaired by Prof Eve Patten (Director, TLRH).
The National Open Research Framework (NORF) is proposing major changes that would affect all researchers at Trinity. Most importantly, it recommends that all exchequer-funded research be open access by default (with limited embargo periods). Though open access is a positive good, the NORF proposals raise concerns about academic freedom and of Irish researchers’ ability to publish in the top journals in their fields. They pose particular issues for researchers in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
