How can we make the most of open practices in research, education and skills?
Research data and publications, learning and teaching materials and software are all increasingly ‘open’, but what does this really mean, and where could it lead? These are the questions that we look at in Open by default?, the latest Jisc horizon scan report.
The report introduces key concepts and terminology in areas such as open access to research and open education. It considers the implications for institutions of the shift towards open science and open educational practices, and summarises support and services from us at Jisc. It then concludes by identifying “three big ideas” where we believe that Jisc could help to make a difference.
