Rigour and Openness in 21st Century Science

By John Hammersley

This is an excellent collection of talks from the Oxford Future of Science event held last month:

Entitled "Rigour and Openness in 21st Century Science", the event brought together representatives from the many areas of science and publication -- including policy makers, publishers, librarians, entrepreneurs, authors and the media -- to debate the direction of science and the challenges in combining the rigour of peer review with the benefits of fast publication and open science.

With 35 speakers and over 100 attendees, the talks covered six key (and inter-related) areas of discussion:
