This might be a bit off-topic for this platform, but I thought I'd still give it a shot. I am looking for some catchphrases (or slogans, or whatever you may call them) regarding Open Science. Something that you can use in images, presentations, on shirts or buttons and that somehow transports a catchy message.

Something along the lines of e.g.

  • "Powered by Everybody",
  • "Because a closed door is seldomly an invitation",
  • "Science is great. Open it."
But only in good, if you know what I mean. ;-)
 
If you happen to know something, I would be glad if you could throw it in here! Thanks!

  • Everybody's knowledge, nobody's property
  • Give a scientist a tool and you feed science for a day. Teach a scientist to be open and you feed science for a lifetime.

As sent by Graham Steel via Twitter.

"Science is fundamentally a peer-to-peer process and online communities will shape the evolution of scholarly publishing" - Cameron Neylon

Thanks Graham! I like the advertising one. The quotes are probably a bit too long to be catchy slogans as in "easy to understand by just a short look". Know what I mean?

Cheers!

"Open Science = Science done according to its definition". Brian Glanz
commented Aug 12, 2016 by matthiasfromm (315 points)
Like that one too. Konrad suggested a short version that matches this too: Not open, not science!

  • Good science that's good for scientists.

  • Making what's good for scientists = what's good for science.

I think that that the slogan

The cost of knowledge: how much do you pay for your own research?

Pretty much nails it down.
