[CODATA-international] Open Source Science for the Earth System Observatory

Just to break in, research and science are not synonymous. Science is s process that requires openness to scrutiny, but I can carryout research for my own purposes that is never made accessible for scrutiny. You can argue that “open research = science”, but I think that leads to severe semantic difficulties.
It's true that the word science in English, if used alone, tends to be used to refer primarily to natural science. Increasingly people use the word more broadly, in the sense of the German Wissenschaft.

Quick question – why would you prefer the use of ‘open research’ rather than ‘open science’?
From all I could find, they should be ‘interchangeable’ (i.e. synonymous (really?)) ?
(I find the lack of clarity / authoritative definitions of the terms used in these discussions very frustrating – it allows too many easy escapes for my taste – so anything towards more strict definitions would be most appreciated.)
Thanks for any comments!

That is not all NASA is doing.
They are organizing the 2023 Year of Open Science
Just wish they would say open research instead of open science

This NASA study and workshops might be of interest. This is an opportunity to shape the next generation of Earth Observing missions that are currently in development.

I would like to thank NASA colleagues for their contributions for open geospatial science.
