On July 17th, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Board on Research Data and Information will host a public release of a consensus study report, Open Science by Design: Realizing a Vision for 21st Century Research.
Wide access to scientific research results has proven to be an important tool for accelerating scientific progress. An ad hoc committee under the Board on Research Data and Information (BRDI) conducted a study on the challenges of broadening access to the results of scientific research, described as “open science.” Ongoing advances in information technologies provide researchers with opportunities to share and access scientific articles, research data, and methodology. Transitioning to more open science should enable increased transparency and reliability, facilitate more effective collaboration, accelerate the pace of discovery, and foster broader and more equitable access to scientific knowledge and the research process. The committee produced a consensus report with findings and recommendations that address these issues, with a focus on solutions that move the research enterprise toward open science.
