Please note that
Researching OIS includes investigating whether, how, and under which conditions applying open and collaborative practices along one or more stages of the scientific research process influences novelty, efficiency and/or impact of scientific research, taking a balanced view that recognizes important contingency factors on the individual, organizational and ecosystem-level.
