”The current OS policy emphasis of the altruistic researcher and one-size-fits-for-all guidelines, do not make Open science policies tangible at the micro level of everyday research practice. – – I firmly believe that gaps between the Open science policy and research practice are an unintended consequence”, writes project manager and researcher Erika Lilja in her article. Lilja’s article is a response to Think Open blog’s Open Access Week’s (October 19–25, 2020) challenge in which people working in science as researchers, specialists etc. tell what motivates them – personally – to foster open science. See other responses here (in Finnish). You are also welcome to participate in this challenge on Twitter with the topic tags #WhyOpenScience or #MiksiAvoinTiede.
