Open science and the understanding of science [quote]

6 Feb

The route for real-time communication presented by open science offers the opportunity for public groups to engage not just with the published outcomes of science but also with its processes, including methodologies, codes, models, and raw data. This changes the context: Rather than science being a series of definitive experiments from which emerge polished results, open science supports the understanding of science as a dynamic, tentative, uncertain, and constantly revised activity.
