*During 6-8 February 2013, several dozen citizens from different sectors of
Australia, New Zealand, the US and the UK came together for the inaugural
New Zealand Australia Open Research Conference. The group included
researchers, lawyers, librarians, research infrastructure providers,
technology consultants, and software developers.*

*New Zealand and Australia are among those nations pioneering open
approaches across the public sector and in some aspects of research. The
Tasman Declaration recommends key actions through which New Zealand and
Australia can coordinate and advance their respective open approaches to
research towards greater economic, societal, and environmental impact. *

*Tasman Declaration*

Publicly funded research should be openly available to maximise return on
investments into research, and to increase participation in research and
its translation beyond the traditional research sector.

"Open Research" is about removing barriers for society to benefit 
from
research, by ensuring open access to and reuse of research papers, data,
materials, metadata and code, and by developing the supporting practices
and policies.

In the absence of a good reason, research outputs should be made available
with as few restrictions as possible and as soon as possible.

*Vision*

Society is able to access and reuse the outputs of publicly funded research
for economic, societal, and environmental benefit.

*Benefits of Open Research*

Open research is more transparent, accessible, efficient and reproducible.

Open Research will:

   - Open up the processes and practices of research


   - Enable public involvement in the entire research process


   - Give society better returns for the money invested in research


   - Facilitate research translation thereby increasing societal, economic,
   and environmental impact


   - Accelerate discovery by allowing timely and efficient feedback and
   quality control of the entire research process


*Recommendations*

1) *Policy Mandates* support and prioritise Open Research
2) *Infrastructure and Capability* enable Open Research
3) *Research Practice and Measurement* encourage and reward Open Research

We recommend that Australian and New Zealand research communities,
institutions, policy makers, and funders *carry out the following actions*:

*1) **Policy Mandates*


   - Australian and New Zealand governments should build Open Research into
   research and innovation policy, particularly for the investment of public
   funds


   - New Zealand and Australia should coordinate actions and share
   knowledge on policies and actions for Open Research


*2) **Infrastructure and Capability*


   - Governments and institutions should coordinate actions to ensure that
   their technical and social research infrastructure supports Open Research
   policies and practices


   - Institutions and researchers should enable and encourage access to,
   mining of, and reuse of any and all research outputs, with as few
   restrictions as possible and as soon as possible


   - Roles and responsibilities of communities, institutions and government
   for the curation and re-use of research outputs should be clearly
   articulated.


*3) **Research Practice and Measurement*


   - Government and institutions should expand the measures for research
   performance to incorporate Open Research practices


   - Institutions and communities should foster research collaboration to
   exploit Open Research


*Conclusion*

Doing research in the open brings research into alignment with worldwide
changes in government and business, where open innovation has enabled
people to achieve more together than they ever could alone.
