Open science is rapidly gaining momentum in part due to its potential to amplify discoveries, ramp up innovation, and address urgent global community challenges. But what are the key characteristics of successful open science initiatives and projects? Do commonalities exist in the barriers/pain points experienced as open science communities develop? And how can successes be scaled to achieve a truly inclusive and equitable open science community that thrives on trust and transparency, ensuring readily accessible, scientific data for all people? In this session, practitioners of open science from a broad community including academia, non-profits, and public and private sectors will share their experiences using open science principles of data accessibility, software, tools and results, reproducibility of the scientific workflow, and inclusivity supporting diversity, equity, and belonging. Opportunities for leveraging community resources to develop capabilities and improve the creation of open science products and services are described to inform ways in which beginners and experts can contribute to open science projects and results. Challenges for embracing open science are also described in terms of the critical factors that enable or prevent success. Examples of the benefits of participating on open science projects are described in terms of professional development, community involvement, and the results produced.
