From Google's English: "Openness is an inherent part of science. Access to proven knowledge and current information determines the quality, content and connectivity of knowledge and innovation. Digitization offers science new opportunities in dealing with knowledge and information. New methods of exchanging publications, research data, program code and teaching materials across institutional, geographical and specialist boundaries have found their way into research and teaching on the basis of the Internet.
In this context, the term Open Science bundles strategies and processes, all of which aim to consistently use the opportunities offered by digitization in order to make all components of the scientific process openly accessible and reusable via the Internet. The aim is to open up new opportunities for science, society and business to deal with scientific findings.
Whether publications, data, program code or teaching materials - researchers around the world have started to make scientific information freely accessible on the web under the attribute Open and terms such as Open Data, Open Source, Open Methodology, Open Peer Review and Open Access. This development takes place at different speeds and in different ways in the scientific communities. Depending on the discipline, different challenges and subject-specific questions have to be taken into account and clarified when opening up scientific information.
One of the central challenges of Open Science is to enable the long-term use of scientific processes and findings in new contexts. For this, legal, technical and cultural framework conditions must be taken into account. Publications, methods and other objects of the research process are to be opened in such a way that they are transparent, comprehensible and reusable. Open Science promotes the development of economy and society through the diverse possibilities in dealing with scientific knowledge."
