Open Science

As a collective term, Open Science includes both classical aspects such as Open Access, open data and software as well as concepts with an impact on society such as Third Mission, Citizen Science or Open Innovation. The driving factors of Open Science are transparent and inclusive research practices, open access to scientific findings and the reproducibility of research results.

The University of Mannheim shares these goals and sees them as part of the efforts to advance scientific progress. It has established an Open Science Office supporting its researchers at all career stages and from all disciplines.
