One of the leading academic information infrastructure institutions in Germany, the SLUB is committed to the ideal of Open Science and supports openness in all areas.
What Does Open Science Mean?
The term Open Science comprises strategies and procedures "which aim to consistently exploit the opportunities of digitisation in order to make all components of the scientific process openly accessible and reusable via the Internet". (Open Knowledge Foundation Deutschland)
According to the misson statement of the Helmholtz Association's Open Science Working Group,
"open access, i.e. access limited by as few financial, technical and legal hurdles as possible, to scientific results such as publications, research data and scientific software improves transparency in science, improves quality assurance procedures and increases the efficiency of science by improving the supply of information. Open science thus always serves to improve good scientific practice. Open Science also promotes knowledge transfer in society, business and politics".
