Open for whom? The need to define open science for science education
Elementary and Early Childhood Education
Open science has become a part of the discourse around educational research (van der Zee & Reich, 2018), including in science education. As a case in point, Sadler and Mensah (2020) observed in the pages of the Journal of Research in Science Teaching (JRST) that while “open science is in its early stages and has yet to impact science education research in significant ways,” it “will influence the science education publishing world including JRST” (p. 150). Reflecting on the potential of open science to our field, Sadler and Mensah wrote that JRST “needs to become a leading voice in the field's response to open science.” (p. 151).
