The term Open Science has as many definitions as means of implementation. Open Science comprises a broad spectrum of practices, including Open Access publishing, open data sharing and knowledge translation. What unites all these practices and many others is the removal of barriers for worldwide collaboration through increased transparency and open sharing of research outputs. Individual researchers and institutions are encouraged to develop Open Science approaches tailored to their realities.
The Douglas Research Centre (DRC) is the first research organization entirely dedicated to mental health to adopt Open Science at the institutional level in Canada. After a 1-year buy-in project supported by the Tanenbaum Open Science Institute (TOSI), the DRC announced five guiding principles for Open Science implementation. These principles were defined through an extensive needs assessment with the DRC community, and reflect our desire to broadly share our knowledge while safeguarding sensitive data from research participants. With ongoing support from TOSI and the Douglas Foundation, we now embark onto the implementation phase of our Open Science program.
