The term Open Science refers to science (specifically, academic science with the goal of public knowledge building) being "open" in the same way that software can be open source--values that those in this community can very much appreciate. One such endeavor, the Open Science Framework, that will be discussed is dedicated to creating a set of tools to improve a scientist's workflow and decrease the gap between scientific values and scientific practices. Open source software is important in this project and, more generally, is going to be critical to attaining truly open science.
