Open Science is a movement based on the idea that scientific knowledge of all kinds should be shared and used. It seeks a comprehensive change in established scientific practices and aims to share scientific information in all areas of the life cycle free of charge and publicly.

Key pillars include:

  • Open Access
  • Open Data
  • Open Peer Review (publication of the peer review process) 
  • Open Notebooks (laboratory notes)
  • Open Source (source codes), etc.
