Open Science is “the movement to make scientific research, data and their dissemination available to any member of an inquiring society, from professionals to citizens. It allows anyone to collaborate and contribute where publications, research data, lab notes and other research processes are freely available, under terms that enable reuse, redistribution and reproduction of the research and its underlying data and methods.” (Source: FOSTER Handbook for Open Science)
Open Access is a fundamental tool for sharing ideas and knowledge in all disciplines with an open, collaborative and non-profit approach:
Firenze University Press is the publishing house of the University of Florence and supports Open Access through its monographs and open access journals, which enable the scientific community to gain immediate access to literature, rapid dissemination and high research impact.
The regulation framework is progressively consolidated starting from international recommendations and reaching the drafting of University Open Access Policies and National Law references.
