*International Open Science in 2020*
2020 could prove a pivotal year for Open Science and the transformation of
research practice, scholarly communications and the stewardship of research
data. The challenges and opportunities of the digital revolution have been
evident for some time and the influence of technological and societal
transformations can be detected in research and communication practice in a
number of domains. For a number of years, certain research funders on the
one hand and certain research communities on the other have advocated
improved data stewardship through the FAIR principles and more open data and
scholarly practices.

Through the European Open Science Cloud and the adoption of data
management plans
and the FAIR principles, the European Commission has been for a number of
years a strenuous advocate of Open Science for good research practice and
as a driver of innovation.  The International Science Council’s Action Plan
gives prominence to digital transformations and Open Science as epochal
issues for global scientific coordination.  UNESCO is preparing an
standard-setting instrument in the form of a Recommendation on Open Science,
for approval at the 2021 General Assembly.  By drawing attention to the
need for international cooperation, real time data sharing and rigorous
scientific transparency the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the
convergence of Open Science and FAIR data.
