Open Science is a growing movement to make scientific research and data accessible to all. The international principle of making research data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) will not only democratise knowledge; it will reinforce open scientific inquiry and integrity, enable better research management, and promote data-intensive research. Integrating the diverse data streams and huge datasets across multiple disciplines offers unprecedented insights and solutions towards local, regional and global complex challenges.

Recognising the importance of harnessing the potential impact of Open Science, the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment & Climate Change (MESTECC) and the Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM), through Malaysia Open Science Alliance is paving the way towards realising Malaysia Open Science Platform (MOSP) as a strategic transformative initiative to strengthen STI Collaborative Ecosystem for Malaysia. This initiative aims to make Malaysia’s research data as a valuable national asset by developing a trusted platform that enables accessibility and sharing of research data aligned to national priorities and international best practices.
