Open Science with Springer Nature (policies and tools)

Open Science is gaining traction within research communities both in Europe and internationally. In addition to the crucial role of open access publications, the sharing of all aspects of the research process—including data, code, and protocols—is now deemed equally vital for fostering collaboration and disseminating knowledge. While, as a leading international publisher, Springer Nature plays a pivotal role in the transition to open access, particularly through transformative agreements, it also supports all other aspects of Open Science and undertakes inititaives to make the sharing easier for authors. Furthermore, the discussion will feature insights from my colleague in Japan, Hiromitsu Urakami, who will provide a specific perspective from Asia.
