Engage in Open Science

Open Science is a broad framework that includes open access to publications, open data, open source software, and standards and systems that facilitate sharing and access to scientific processes and products across society.

"The idea behind Open Science is to allow scientific information, data and outputs to be more widely accessible (Open Access) and more reliably harnessed (Open Data) with the active engagement of all the stakeholders (Open to Society)" UNESCO 2021

Funders are increasingly requiring data sharing or open access publications to facilitate open science. One example is the NIH's Public Access Policy, which requires that peer-reviewed final manuscripts of articles, arising from NIH-funded research, be deposited in PubMed Central. NIH will require data management and sharing plans starting in January 2023.
