Background : Demands for more openness are signs of the time in our increasingly Web-based society, and even in scholarly circles, initiatives related Open Access, Open Data and Open Source are getting a lot of attention lately. While these three movements are focused on making the outcomes of research publicly and openly available, what about making the research process more open? Technically, research can be shared with the world as soon as it is recorded, but why do researchers generally not do it?
The hangout will start with a brief introduction to the topic of Open Research. Following that, we will dive deeper into the question why research proposals are not normally shared, and what the benefits would be of doing so. In preparation of the event, as well as throughout and after it, feel free to post ideas, comments, and questions here.
