Open Science seeks to make scientific research and data accessible to all. Elements of open science include open access, opening data and code for others to reproduce results, and open standards to ease publishing and communicating scientific knowledge. Limitations of traditional publishing models, and advantages and risks of participating in open science will be analyzed and discussed. The overall benefits of increased local and global collaboration will be presented using exemplars of open science. Global trends in attitudes about data sharing and researcher practices, and practical steps to begin to participate in open science in your own research and institution will be highlighted.
