The value of open data in academic science

Open science is one way today to deliver science to societies around the world. And, it can include open education, open research, open source, and open culture. At TU Delft, they are one of the many academic institutions joining a force of dedicated groups of people making significant contributions to finding responsible solutions to societal problems, at both a national and international level. The academic content created at universities is often paid for by the government, so it should be accessible for the whole society.

The proposal envisions stakeholders forming partnerships, each handling one or more of the duties of funding, distributing and preserving open-access scholarly research -- specifically in the humanities and social sciences. To fund the new structure of scholarly communication, institutions would pay into a centralized fund that awards grants to promote research through a competitive application process.
