‘Open’ is a highly-visible cultural trend of the early twenty-first century. A brief scan of a
newspaper or quick Internet search reveals it as a prefix to learning, source, standard, data,
knowledge, democracy, access, repository, innovation, government, science and probably
more. The expectations of the broadband generation – young people born around the turn of
the century – for openness and instant, on‑demand access to information affect research as
much as any other social activity. As the world’s population of digital residents – those who
see the Web as the place where they express opinions, form relationships, develop an identity
and belong to a community – grows, the expectation that the Web will be the place where
information is created and communicated will grow alongside them.
