FASEB Celebrates Year of Open Science

Monday, August 21, 2023
FASEB joins with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and other federal agencies to celebrate Year of Open Science. Open science is the principle and practice of making research products widely available, thereby fostering collaborations and improving equity while protecting security and privacy.  
OSTP designated 2023 as the Year of Open Science, marking the 10-year anniversary of OSTP’s call for increased access to results of federally funded research. 

In the remainder of 2023, FASEB will highlight open science within our community through
  • A series of free and openly available brief informational videos on open science. These videos will describe the strategic efforts our member societies are taking to advance open science. 
  • Two free workshops for member society staff will provide insight to advancing open science (dates to be announced). Topics will include a metascience view—why open science in the biological and biomedical sciences in collaboration with the Center for Open Science—and a practical look at business models for open access in biological and biomedical sciences. 
  • Continued partnerships with member societies to offer support for their members on open data. This is being accomplished through FASEB DataWorks! 
  • Production and dissemination of whitepapers outlining FASEB’s experiences across open science and research integrity.
