Wiley Open Science Ambassador Program

Open Science is not just the future of research communications; it is the here and now.

About the Program

Open Research and Open Science play a vital role in science communications. The benefits are clear: improved effectiveness and productivity of research communications, better and more accurate reproducibility and validation of research results, facilitation for reuse and innovation of knowledge, and heightened awareness for the general public.

At Wiley, we’ve embraced and fostered open research and open science in various ways, actions, and initiatives. Within the five key areas (open access, open practices, open collaboration, open recognition and reward, and open data) we focus to support researchers in open research and open science aspirations. Wiley has signed multiple landmark open access agreements such as our partnership with Projekt DEAL. These agreements are moving us to a more open world. We share in the community's belief that Open Research and Open Science not only facilitate science and science communication, but they extend the benefits and value of research to the world at large.

With this vision, we’ve launched the Open Science Ambassador Program. We‘d like to recognize thought-leaders who have contributed to Open Research and Open Science in their communities. Together with the ambassadors, we will not only make research and science more impactful and open in China, but also maximize the global impact of Chinese research. We’ll do this through training events, conferences, thought-leadership, and added communication activities. Our goal is simple: connect the research community to the rest of the world.
