The DIM PAMIR supports an approach to open science that is consistent with priorities identified by the Second National Plan for Open Science (2021):

  • generalising open access to publications
  • structuring, sharing and opening up research data
  • expanding and promoting source code produced by research
  • transforming practices to make open science the default principle

Its originality lies in:

  • it seeks to transform research practices from existing practices by a bottom-up and realistic approach
  • its collaborative nature

In this context, the DIM develops and implements tools that make data documentation a centralized issue to ensure data traceability, search data, store data and software in an accessible and/or durable manner, and lastly, integrate the reflection of formats and standards that will contribute to generating a legitimate digital heritage in the field of ancient systems.

Open science is represented in several dimensions of the DIM:

  • supporting the study of material heritages through the development of original methods in mathematics and information sciences by the methodological axis, Data and digital methods
  • effecting the DIM PAMIR Open Science Policy that declines the different objectives of the DIM in relation to the three pillars of open science: publications, data and software. It refers to the documents requested for the Doctorate and Post-doctorate project calls, a data management plan and a data reuse policy (inspired by the Data Reuse Charter developed in the framework of DARIAH), and for the Equipment project calls, an equipment access policy
  • organizing training courses using the model based off the DOPAMINE workshops from DIM Matériaux anciens et patrimoniaux
  • opening of structuring data of the DIM network by publishing them in the form of datasets and maps
  • proposing structuring projects, notably the “Référentiel francilien” (production of an infrastructure for reference collections (material libraries, ossothèques, etc.) and the “Cartable numérique” (valorization of research results for high school students), will be based on open science practices

The DIM is setting up tools to structure the heritage science community around open science research methods and practices.
