Open Science is core to PLOS’ mission, but it’s you, the research community, who defines what Openness really means.

We’ve assembled experts, gathered resources, and launched conversations we hope will continue over the coming months.

With you, we’ll explore the drivers behind Open Science, emerging trends, obstacles and experiences—all with the aim of increasing awareness and support, and developing better solutions.

Will you commit to practice Open Science? 

Key Themes

Scientists for Open Science, a week-long virtual program bringing together researchers and stakeholders from around the globe to share perspectives on Open Science. Join us across the week to discuss and engage with Open Science benefits across the following themes:

Science is stronger when we work together—across distance, discipline and career stage 

Practicing inclusion and transparency demonstrates credibility, reduces bias, and builds trust

True impact can be measured in influence over public policy, increased international collaboration and greater trust in science

Consistent application of Open Science practices contributes to a reputation for integrity, high-quality research, collaboration, and leadership in the field that will stay with you throughout your career.

Open Science also provides communities with tools for engaging with shared problems and data sources efficiently, across distances, and at large scale.
