Scholarly communication: the journey towards openness

23 Oct 2015
Description

Introduction

Over the last decade or so, travellers moving towards an open future for scholarly communications have picked up their pace, spurred on by shifts in public perceptions of openness and by evolving scholarly views and practices.

National and international initiatives from governments and funders have provided fresh incentives so that, in the summer of 2014, the time was right for a review of achievements so far and an exploration of emerging issues and points of interest.

In the scholarly context openness is now embedded and it is remarkable how much scholarly information is accessible today, compared with ten or 15 years ago. Following the scholarly lead, openness has now gained traction in wider society so that many governments, businesses and nonprofit organisations are striving to be open.
