Collection description

If we imagine a scientist sleeping for 15 years and waking up today we can just guess his/her surprise: open access journals, papers that are published along with accessible repositories where authors make available the data, the codes that they used to analyze the data and all the relevant digital materials. Even peer reviews are available to the reader, not to mention pre-registration documents that reveal step by step the origin of scientific path followed by the author! All of this is happening because of a double reason. First, we realised that science – often obscured behind paywalls – needed to be accessible by everyone. The second reason for this increase in transparency is perhaps is less noble: we realized that the science we were making needed some adjustments as many of the results reported in the literature were likely false positive. Altogether, this abrupt increment in research transparency and accessibility has been referred to as “open science”. In my talk I will review the major ideas that are emerging nowadays in science to increase accessibility, trustiness and transparency.
