What is Open Research?

The core idea of Open Research, also known as Open Science, is that the research process should be as open as possible. This could apply to protocols, data, software and code as well as publications. There are a number of benefits of open research, such as greater transparency of the research process, increased visibility, higher citation rates and greater opportunities for collaboration.
