Open Science is a movement that seeks to make scientific research more transparent, accessible, and collaborative. As the field continues to grow, there has been an emergence of academies and journals that specialize in Open Science, providing a platform for researchers to share their work openly and promote the principles of Open Science.
Academies of Open Science
Academies of Open Science are organizations that promote and facilitate the use of Open Science practices. These academies typically provide training, resources, and support to researchers interested in Open Science, as well as advocate for the adoption of Open Science policies and practices at the institutional and governmental levels.
One example of an Academy of Open Science is the Open Science Academy, which was launched in 2019 by the European Union. The Open Science Academy provides training and resources to researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders to promote the principles of Open Science, including open access, open data, and open peer review.
Journals of Open Science
Journals of Open Science are academic journals that specialize in publishing research that adheres to Open Science principles. These journals typically require authors to make their data and code openly available, as well as make their articles freely available online without any access restrictions or paywalls.
One example of a Journal of Open Science is PLOS ONE, which was launched in 2006. PLOS ONE is an open access journal that publishes research in all areas of science and medicine, with a focus on rigorous, transparent, and reproducible research. PLOS ONE has become one of the largest and most influential scientific journals in the world, with thousands of articles published each year.
Benefits of Academies and Journals of Open Science
The emergence of academies and journals of Open Science has had a significant impact on the field, promoting greater collaboration, transparency, and accessibility in scientific research. By providing training, resources, and support to researchers, academies of Open Science are helping to promote the adoption of Open Science principles at all levels of the research process.
Similarly, by requiring authors to adhere to Open Science principles, journals of Open Science are helping to promote greater transparency and reproducibility in scientific research. This can help to increase the reliability and impact of scientific research, as well as promote greater collaboration and knowledge-sharing within the scientific community.
The emergence of academies and journals of Open Science is an important development in the field, helping to promote greater transparency, collaboration, and accessibility in scientific research. As the field continues to grow, it is likely that we will see further developments in the way that research is conducted, communicated, and evaluated, with the principles of Open Science playing an increasingly important role.
