Abstract (Document Summary)

The new forms of research enabled by the latest technologies bring about collaboration among researchers in different locations, institutions, and even disciplines.

Over the last decade there has been much discussion about the merits of open standards, open source software, open access to scholarly publications, and most recently open data.
