Open Science and Research

“Open science is the movement to make scientific research, data and dissemination accessible to all levels of an inquiring society.”


Openness is a key principle of science and research, creating new opportunities for participation by researchers, decision makers and the general public.

Scientific knowledge is by nature open and responsible, and this openness should be reflected not only in data collection but also in research and evaluation methods. Others’ desire to access and use research results indicates a study’s significance and, because its results are widely used, openness also increases the impact of that research.
