Open Science: Another way of doing science at university

The concept of Open Science brings a new way to carry out the scientific research and emphasise the collaborative, transparent and accessible conditions of this task. It demands that researchers make available their results, but also they must assume the commitment of applying practices to promote the use of shared resources. Several organizations, like EU and UNESCO, are driving initiatives in order to achieve this aim, and universities, as one of the main sources of new knowledge, are assigned to be an essential element in this new scene.

In the chapter Educational Research and Social Responsibility (2020), we value the need to carry out educational research engaged in social transformation from the approach of Science with and for Society (SwafS). In this situation, transfer models play a relevant role in creating synergies between all the agents involved and providing research with social impact. Research and practice partnerships are a challenge and a requirement for the credibility of educational research.
