What is meant by Open Science

Behind the concept of Open Science lies the vision that research, i.e. research data, research publications and other forms of research dissemination should, as far as possible, be made freely available. The mission is to get better circulation of knowledge so that the research and its results are distributed widely and will benefit the research community and society as a whole.

Open Science is supported by digital technology, "big data" and globalization of research.

Open Science includes a number of well-known elements:

  • Open Access to research publications.
  • Open Access to reserch data.
  • Open Source software.
  • Citizen Science - with citizen participation.

DTU Library & Open Science

DTU Library supports Open Science at DTU on several fronts. Every day, we work to make research publications and research data from DTU Open Access. Open Source software developed at DTU can be archived in our systems and we support Citizen Science when it makes sense.

We manage and develop a number of digital platforms supporting Open Science.

  • DTU Findit -
    DTU Findit provides access to scientific literature - and links DTU publications and DTU research data.
  • DTU Orbit -
    DTU Orbit is DTU official institutional repository. DTU's research publications and projects are registered here and post-prints of the articles are made available here – the green way to Open Access.
  • DTU Data -
    In DTU Data, DTU's research data and data sets are registered and stored to make them globally available. DTU Data supports the implementation of the FAIR principles for research data: Findable, Accessible Interoperability, Reusable.
