Open Research

Open Research is the practice of researching in such a way that others can collaborate and contribute throughout the research process, from making hypotheses, lab notes and research data freely available, continuing through the peer review and open access publication processes, to the further dissemination of knowledge through freely available software and open educational materials.  All research items should be made freely available under terms that enable reuse, redistribution and reproduction of the research and its underlying data and methods.
