OPEN SCIENCE FOR ALL
In recent years, Open Science movement is gaining traction in many countries with international bodies such as International Science Council (ISC), Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the World Bank are championing and advocating Open Science globally. The international principle of making research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) will not only democratize knowledge, it reinforces open scientific inquiry and integrity, enables better research management, and promotes open innovation, citizen science as well as data intensive research. Integrating the diverse data streams and huge datasets across multiple disciplines offers unprecedented insights and solutions towards local, regional, and global complex challenges.
Open Science is an approach based on open cooperative work and systematic sharing of knowledge and tools as early and widely as possible in the process. It has the potential to increase the quality and efficiency of research and accelerate the advancement of knowledge and innovation by sharing results, making them more reusable and improving their reproducibility.
