Description

Open science has momentum. It is much discussed, though most often by advocates or product suppliers. The idea entails shifts in research practice with substantial implications for resource use in support of research. To understand these implications and to make informed choices about the future of the research enterprise, we must fully understand what is being proposed and consider any empirical evidence on the effects. To this end, this talk will explore the origin, meaning, implications and current status of open science. Aligned with the most recent National Academies report on the topic, open science will be defined as encompassing the following: open access publishing, open data, open software, reproducible research, open evaluation, public engagement and policy.
