Open Science is a new approach to the scientific process based on cooperative work and new ways of diffusing knowledge through digital technologies and collaborative tools. With the goal of making scientific research available to all. A goal that could be accomplished by publishing open scientific research, campaigning for open access, and making it easier to both publish and communicate knowledge and new findings.

Finding ways of making research more transparent and accessible during the research process has become incredibly relevant for research about SARS-CoV2 and Covid-19. Open notebook science, citizen science, crowdfunding and open source software is more relevant than ever.
