This is the session that Sean Ekins (@collabchem) and I will lead at ScienceOnline2013 (#scio13)

This session will discuss what open science means and how we can encourage it, if indeed we need to.

Questions:
- How do we define openness – Open Access, Open Data, Open Science?
- Are there obvious benefits to openness in science?
- If yes, what are the blocks towards openness? Tools, Systems, IP concerns, organizational support.
- Do scientists have to be fully open or is partial or part time open?
- What are incentives to move scientists towards openness
- Do journals, patents, IP all prevent openness?
- Do open journals promote open science or not?
- What projects can we launch at SciO13 and monitor/measure for impact of Open Science
- Which prominent open scientist can we invite to scio13?
