How do researchers who have made their work openly available as a condition of their grant funding feel about their experiences? What advice would they give to their peers, and to philanthropic organizations considering the adoption of open policies? The Open Research Funders Group (ORFG) is pleased to launch a new resource, “Profiles in Open”. Profiles in Open provides a forum for researchers to explain how open practices impacted their work, what they learned through the sharing of their research, how it has impacted their attitudes toward open science going forward, and what they think others can learn from their experiences. To read the first batch of Profiles in Open, please visit the ORFG Reading List page.
