Open science is a research accelerator
At the Extraordinary G20 Leaders' Summit on COVID-19 on March 26, 2020, China launched an online knowledge center for the prevention and control of novel coronavirus pneumonia, a center open to all countries. Since the outbreak of coronavirus disease, China has been sharing knowledge about disease prevention and control with the World Health Organization and governments throughout the world.
It was on March 19, 2020, only 1 week before the Summit, that the China Association for Science and Technology released a program to fund studies concerning global trends in Open Access and the development approach of Open Access in China. In addition to its interest in Open Access, China encourages the cultivation of world-class academic journals and active participation in the academic publishing industry for the promotion of scholarly communication.
