The title of the site is "Open Science". How does the site define "science" and is such a definition important for describing and managing the site?
Science is sometimes used to mean a method of inquiry (as in the scientific method), but it also can carry a connotation of describing only certain disciplines (e.g., "science" versus "social science"). Does "open science" refer to specific methods or disciplines?
Digital humanities is likely to have a lot in common with open science, but it is neither explicitly open nor necessarily science. Does open science have a broadly encompassing scope that would include this or does it leave out non-scientific approaches and/or non-scientific disciplines?
