Novel approaches in Open Science

Open Access is a standard for scientific publishing, demanded by important research funders and pushed forward politically. Following that track implementing open data and open science are the next challenging tasks for researchers. We approach these topics in all their facets and hear about novel approaches such as open research software, replication studies, and preregistration studies, or diamond open access journals.
