About this blog

Welcome to the “Open Research: Adventures from the frontline” blog

During 2016 the idea of trying an experiment in working openly was floating around the Office of Scholarly Communication at Cambridge University. The Wellcome Trust were willing collaborators and the Open Research Pilot was conceived.

The project has identified various issues and points for discussion and thoughts, many articulated in blogs published on the OSC’s Unlocking Research  blog.

Now, over a year in, the time has come to provide an independent publishing outlet for this project. A place where our research community can contribute to the discussion. This blog is that outlet.

We have reproduced all the relevant blogs from Unlocking Research here so everything is in one place. Blogs related to the Open Research Pilot and observations by the research community will be published here from now on.

We hope you enjoy it.
