Open Scholarship: Welcome

What is Open Scholarship?

Open Scholarship (also referred to as Open Science or Open Research) is the practice of research, education and knowledge exchange in such a way that others can collaborate and contribute, where research publications, data, lab notes and other scholarly processes and works are properly and ethically managed and evaluated and, unless restricted for justifiable reasons, are freely available.

In addition to being freely available the outputs of Open Scholarship are licensed under terms that enable reuse, redistribution and reproduction of the work and its underlying data and methods.
