Résumé : Open Science is a concept which can be applied to all stages of the research workflow in linguistics: we have the gathering of data, the transformation and enrichment of data via scripts or human annotation, and the publication of research findings in books or articles. Data, scripts, and publications should all be made as open as possible in order for other researchers to engage with and build upon the research being undertaken. In this talk, Sebastian Nordhoff will show how these aspects of openness can be realised during the production of a linguistic book, using the open access publisher Language Science Press as an example. Topics discussed include file formats and criteria to choose among them, workflows, collaborative editing and versioning, linguistic data repositories, linguistic preprint servers, disambiguation of documents and researchers, long term preservation, discoverability, reusability, legal aspects, and the impact of reputation and prestige. These aspects will be exemplified via the workflow of a manuscript, showing how and where at each stage there are potentials for making each step more open, transparent, and collaborative.
