Under the leadership of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), all major U.S. federal agencies are participating in declaring 2023 the “Federal Year of Open Science.”
The Center for Open Science is proud to be participating in NASA’s Year of Open Science to “celebrate the benefits and successes of open science, and inspire more scientists to join the movement,” featuring events and activities to “inspire open science engagement,” as part of NASA’s multi-year Transform to Open Science (TOPS) initiative.
As part of the Year of Open Science, OSTP and the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) released an official definition of open science for use across the U.S. government: “The principle and practice of making research products and processes available to all, while respecting diverse cultures, maintaining security and privacy, and fostering collaborations, reproducibility, and equity.” According to OSTP and NSTC, “a unified, official definition will galvanize federal efforts, promote interagency collaboration, and drive progress.”
