Showing public value: Factors supporting researchers’ attitudes to open science

Funders – notably in the UK, EU and USA – are increasingly pressing researchers to make research outputs openly available. While an open access policy may be a driver, my research suggests that many publicly-funded researchers acknowledge that public funding carries an obligation to make their results publicly available. Additionally, making research more open has the potential to support two-way communication and widen participation. Increasing participation by making research open not only draws on these new participants’ skills and expertise but also enables re-use and re-purposing of research outputs, increasing return and enabling researchers to validate its ‘public value’.
