Episode 222

Open repositories. The proliferation of preprints. Real-time engagement between non-academics and researchers. For many, these elements represent the positives of open science, all of which gained prevalence in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. But can these temporary changes become permanent? What is the future of open research?

In the final episode of this four-part series, Caroline Nevison and Dr. Ritu Dhand, both of Springer Nature, discuss the prospective landscape of open science. First, Caroline reveals how Springer Nature supports libraries post-transformative agreement. She details the provided workflows and analytics that allow institutions to track the benefits of open access publishing for its authors, faculty, and administration.

Ritu underscores how COVID-19 has shaped the open science environment. Looking ahead, she details what the open movement needs—from government agencies, publishers, and researchers—to sustain its momentum, and its advantages to the scholarly community and society at large.
