AuthorAID – What is open science and why is it important?

“Open practices are inherently good for you, your career, and your research. You can accrue citations faster, get greater exposure for your work, increase your speed of communication and collaboration, and even now get more funding and career opportunities. At the same time, the public gets access to your work and your findings can be more widely applied and re-used as the playing field has been levelled. So, in reality ‘Open Science’ as a set of practices helps to enhance your researcher profile, increases the dissemination of your work, and makes you a more effective researcher, while at the same time emphasising your core values as both a researcher and a human being. Thus, even within traditional systems of researcher evaluation and career progression, openness gives you an edge.”
