The Biden-Harris Administration has announced new actions to advance open and equitable research in the United States. This includes a focus on increasing public access to federally funded research, promoting open data and open-source technology, and investing in training and resources for researchers. These actions come at a crucial time, as the world continues to navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and work towards a more equitable and sustainable future.
Open science practices, such as open access, open data, and open-source technology, are essential for achieving these goals. They allow for increased collaboration, transparency, and accessibility in research, ultimately leading to more efficient and impactful discoveries. By making research openly available, we can ensure that the benefits of federally funded research are shared with all members of society, regardless of their ability to pay for access.
At 4Science we provide open science technologies and solutions, and we are proud to support institutions in their open science initiatives. Our services include open access repositories, research data management, open science training, and consulting. We understand the unique challenges and opportunities that come with implementing open science practices and are committed to helping our clients succeed.
As we look forward to the Open Science year in the USA, it is important to remember that open science is not just a trend, but a necessary step towards a more inclusive and equitable society. The Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to open science is a promising sign for the future of research in the United States. We at 4Science are excited to continue to support institutions in their efforts to promote open, inclusive, and equitable research practices.
