Open science: the future of research?

If we want to eradicate diseases in the developing world, increase innovation in the pharmaceutical industry and speed up the discovery of new medicines we need to share research, writes Alice Williamson.

…the ‘six laws’ of open research:

  • All data are open and all ideas are shared for others to use, modify and share
  • Anyone can take part at any level
  • There will be no patents
  • Suggestions are the best form of criticism
  • Public discussion is much more valuable than private email
  • An open project is bigger than, and is not owned by, any given lab
