In 2 weeks I have a challenging presentation to policy-makers about Science 2.0, based on the results of our study. By Science 2.0 we mean open access, open data, open code, reproducible science, citizen science.

The big challenge is how to convince policy-makers that science 2.0 is not just a fad.

My arguments are:

– it’s happening already: data showing that many scientist are practicing it;

– it’s having an impact: discoveries made using science 2.0 that would not have been possible before;

What are in your experience the best argument to use in such case?
