3QuarksDaily Series on Open Science
Bill Hooker just posted his second installment on Open Science.
In Part 1 of this essay, I gave an outline of the scholarly publishing practice/philosophy known as Open Access; here I want to examine ways in which the central concept of OA, the "open" part, is being expanded to encompass all of science.
It is a pretty thorough analysis of the various forms that openness can take in science. How nice that ONS is his favorite :)
My personal favourite (term and practice) is Open Notebook Science, but this seems better suited to being the name of the most open subset of Open Science practices since, as with Open Access, it is likely that a range of applications will co-exist and co-evolve.
His next post should also be of great interest:
...there will now be a third instalment. In that piece I will try to show what Open Science looks like now, in its infancy, and to sketch some of the directions in which it might grow.
