The COVID19 crisis also shows how important the implications of Open Science can be to society. Although opening up of research seems to be crucial for scientific communication, it is still difficult to put into practice. In this Study just published as a journal article in SAGE Open, Joshua M.

The results of this two-part study show that it is possible to publish everything related to the research process as soon as possible, as comprehensively as possible, and under an open license, but that there is also still a discrepancy between the scientists’ understanding of open access, the support for open science, and their actual practice of open communication.
