Open Access journals are known to be accessible to all. But will this be for good, too? An international study on the disappearance of Open Access articles and complete journals from the internet has caused quite a stir in the community.

Projects that are completed too late, where costs get out of hand or which have been allowed to spiral beyond the users’ control: these are just a few examples of nightmare scenarios in project management. Digitalisation, changing values and a dynamic environment render it both possible and necessary to deal with new, agile forms of work. How about using agility in projects to push the implementation of innovation and Open Science? One way to do this is to apply the Scrum project management approach, an overview of which we provide here.
