Third in a series of reports to emerge from the Jisc Horizon Scanning project.

Research data and publications, learning and teaching materials and software are all increasingly 'open', but what does this really mean, and where could it lead?

This report looks at the opportunities that working in the open creates, summarises support from Jisc in this area, and suggests three big ideas for what we could do the future.

The report look at the areas of research and education that are being transformed by open practices, and explains key concepts around licensing of publications, educational resources, data and software.

It looks examples of where open approaches have been particularly successful, and considers the implications for institutions of moving to a culture where open practices are the default mode of operation.
