About ESA Open Science

What is open science?

Open science is the idea that the products and the process of science should be freely accessible (i.e. open) to everyone.  This includes things like open educational materials, open access publications, open data, open source software/code, and open methods.

Open science isn’t an all-or-nothing type venture.  We recommend starting with the aspects of open science that you (or your collaborators) are more comfortable with, and  expand into other aspects as you choose.

Links for open talks, data, etc. from #ESA100 are available here. (If you made your material available, add it to the list, and welcome.)
