Open Research

Find out how we are supporting the adoption of Open Research principles and practice.


Open Science [known as Open Research in the UK] opens up new ways in which research/ education/innovation are undertaken, archived and curated, and disseminated across the globe. Open Science is not about dogma per se; it is about greater efficiency and productivity, more transparency and a better response to interdisciplinary research needs. All this can have a profound impact on universities because, to deliver Open Science, both universities and university researchers should develop new perspectives. To embrace Open Science, universities and researchers need to embrace cultural change in the way they work, plan and operate.
