Open research is concerned with making scientific research more transparent, more collaborative and more efficient. Other aspects are more open forms of collaboration and engagement with a wider audience. The following principles were set forth by CHORUS in support of open research.

  1. We believe in sustainable Open Access practices and workflows.
  2. We believe that it should be easy for researchers to understand how publishing in our publications will support them in complying with funder OA mandates.
  3. We believe users should be directed to the best version of an article available to them, ideally the Version of Record on the publisher site, where they may find essential context, tools, and information.
  4. We believe all parties should be able to track funded research literature with minimal administrative overheads.
  5. We believe data associated with research, as well as methods and code, should comply with relevant FAIR principles, taking into account differences between fields and categories of research objects.
