Open research is concerned with making all aspects of the research process more collaborative and more efficient. A central aspect to it is to provide Open Access to scholarly output especially to the research published in journals and to the underlying data, much of which traditional science and other disciplines tends to hide away. Other aspects are more open forms of collaboration and engagement with a wider audience, including citizen scientists and the public at large.
