USGS Celebrates the Year of Open Science

Throughout the Year of Open Science, USGS will be sharing open science success stories, tips and tools for robust open science practices, and discussions on the value of open, equitable, and secure scientific enterprises. 

As a global leader in Earth system science, the USGS understands the enormous value of making research products and processes available to all. The USGS supports open science with robust data and software release policies and tools, open communities of practice, and ongoing partnerships with underrepresented groups. The USGS will be engaging its scientists in activities to further improve accessibility, reproducibility, and transparency of our scientific work, through trainings, workshops, and cross-USGS communications.
