This should probably have been one of the earliest questions to bring up, and I think some basic definition of open science was part of the StackExchange beta, but on the current site, we do not provide a definition, so it seems about time to start a thread on how open science is defined, or what defines it.

There is a closely related question about what the "open" means in science: https://ask-open-science.org/29/what-does-open-mean-in-science .

One example amongst the many available, this systematic literature review may be an overkill.. but it makes the following proposition: “Open Science is transparent and accessible knowledge that is shared and developed through collaborative networks”

Ruben Vicente-Saezand and Clara Martinez-Fuentes 2018 Open Science now: A systematic literature review for an integrated definition, Journal of Business Research, Volume 88, Pages 428-436 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jbusres.2017.12.043, https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0148296317305441

Ask Open Science used to be called Open Science Q&A but we changed the name when we registered the domain ask-open-science.org. Everything else stays the same: We are still hosted by Bielefeld University.
