July 15, 2016 – Last week, the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and Portage submitted a response to the June 2016 consultation on the draft new plan on Open Government. Specifically addressing the plan’s commitment to increased openness of federal science activities, five recommendations were made that together promote a vision of open science where infrastructure and services are distributed across institutions and departments, yet community governed. While institutions and departments manage content locally, these collections interoperate through the adoption of common, open standards and shared platform services. This model fosters organizational flexibility and innovation, while increasing the sustainability of an open science ecosystem.
