Open Access, Open Research, Open Data, Open Science, Open what? Marcus Burkhardt (@bumatic), Christian Heise (@christianheise) | GFM 2013
Open Access: Motivations ● research funded by the public should be available to the public (ethical) ● OA publications will have more accesses (readers), citations and therefore impact (Research Impact) ● concern over the hindrance to research caused by the cost of journal subscriptions (cost) ●. . .
Open Access: Green and Gold ● green: the author can self-archive at the time of submission of the publication (the 'green' route) whether the publication is grey literature (usually internal non-peer-reviewed), a peer-reviewed journal publication, a peer-reviewed conference proceedings paper or a monograph ● gold: the author or author institution can pay a fee to the publisher at publication time, the publisher thereafter making the material available 'free' at the point of access (the 'gold' route). The two are not, of course, incompatible and can co-exist. ● further little-used “road” hybrid forms: for example platinum open access (does not charge author fees). . .
Open Science ● umbrella term of the movement to make scientific research, data and dissemination accessible to all levels of an inquiring society, amateur or professional ● encompasses practices such as publishing open research, campaigning for open access, encouraging scientists to practice open notebook science ● generally making it easier and more efficient to do, publish and communicate scientific knowledge Source: en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Open_science

Open what? “As a concept [. . . ] the open is reactionary; it gains meaning largely through a consideration of what it is not. ” Tkacz, Nate: “From open source to open government: A critique of open politics”, in: Ephemera, 12(4), S. 400.
Open what? “At the same time, closure remains an inherent part of the open; it is what openness must continually respond to and work against – a continual threat amongst the ranks. Openness, we might say, implies antagonism, or what the language of openness would describe as closures. Such closures do not randomly emerge, unexpected and from the outside. It is the very qualities that Popper holds up as representative of contemporary openness [. . . ] that not only coincide with, but are actually generative of new forms of closure. ” Tkacz, Nate: “From open source to open government: A critique of open politics”, in: Ephemera, 12(4), S. 403.

Merge annotated and simple versions of the definition v 1. 1 Ongoing: Further Development Open Definition v 1. 2 dev+
