Abstract: Open Science is a movement largely based on knowledge sharing and its discussion has been carried out by several areas, including Information Science. Scientific collaboration has potential to benefit science in several ways, however, little is known about country collaboration in this area. Objective: Therefore, the objective of this work is to analyze scientific cooperation between countries on the subject of Open Science in the field of Information Science. Methodology: The network analysis method (co-authorship between countries) and the frequency of keywords were used to identify the most discussed subjects. Results: The results showed that England has a central position in the scientific collaboration network. However, it is necessary to improve communication to avoid loss of quality in the information transmission. Conclusion: The Open Access theme is still the most evident, however, topics such as research data management have gained notoriety in discussions on Open Science in the field of Information Science.
