The Open Research movement seeks to maximise the impact and benefits of research by prioritising barrier-free access to research findings, data and methodologies. Open Research reflects a fundamental belief that the pursuit of knowledge benefits directly from collaboration, transparency, rapid dissemination and accessibility.

The aims of the Open Research movement offer significant benefits for researchers, authors, institutions, funders, governments and society as a whole. The promise of accelerating the ability of research to solve problems and tackle complex issues is leading institutions, funders and governmental bodies to strongly embrace it. Seismic changes are underway, and there is no doubt that openness will play a significant role in the future of academic publishing.
