Open science is truly about the ability to create a chain reaction to extend the reach of research.  It’s keeping wonder alive through the exchange of ideas and science.


As part of Open Access Week, we’re celebrating the ways open science drives research forward by sharing a story from one of our amazing authors. In a short video, we hear the story of Nadia Magnenat-Thalmann and how, by openly sharing and collaborating on data and software, she was able to advance her research. Motivated by her mother’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis, Nadia builds on her work and creates social robot companions to spend time with people like her mother, to help them stay connected to their lives.the-lab-small.png

Now, we want to hear from you:


How does open science drive your work forward and help you achieve your goals?


Share your story using #MyOpenScienceStory on Twitter or Instagram or submit through our website. For every story we receive, we’ll donate $10 to Cure Alzheimer’s Fund.




Cure Alzheimer's Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to funding the world’s leading Alzheimer’s researchers with the highest probability of preventing, slowing or reversing the disease.


Since its foundation in 2004, Cure Alzheimer's Fund has been providing research grants to the worlds’ leading scientists researching Alzheimer’s disease. 100% of donations go directly to research and to date, it has contributed over $75,000,000 to Alzheimer’s research. The fund insists on collaboration among funded scientists and many of their projects have resulted in significant breakthroughs, developing a deeper understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and getting closer to a cure.


We are committed to communicating and driving research discovery to the world, and open science supports our vision by enabling more rapid and effective discoveries.


At the same time we're openly embracing the fundamentals of enhanced transparency and openness, focusing our efforts and extending our message across our communities and
partnerships, researchers and authors, inventors and innovators. We are fostering support, building advocacy and focusing our open science strategy
across what believe are five key areas:

  • Open Access
  • Open Data
  • Open Practices
  • Open Collaboration
  • Open Recognition & Reward


We believe open science will ultimately drive a more effective and faster pace of discovery, helping researchers achieve their goals. But for us, it’s about more than just words. Find out more about how Wiley is supporting open science at
