5 pillars of open academia[edit | edit source]
These pillars can be seen as the support for an open learning community to replace a closed "ivory tower".
The pillars are:
- open access
- open standards (including open document formats)
- open licensing - open to be shared and adapted
- open management - open and transparent governance
- open source software (or "free software," the free referring to software freedoms)
An "open academic" is therefore one who supports these five pillars, in practice.
