Open science and transparency in applied linguistics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


The Open Science (OS) movement embodies major shifts in research practices, from initial design, through peer review, to dissemination of findings. Whilst its ultimate aim is to make the entire research process freely accessible to all, OS encompasses a wide range of practices on a continuum of openness that are being adopted to different extents across different disciplines and sub-domains within applied linguistics. The current article describes these practices and their driving forces, and examines the extent to which OS practices are established in the field of Applied Linguistics and considers some of the (potential) benefits and challenges of OS.
