Louise Bezuidenhout and Jo Havemann have examined 242 Open Science tools in terms of their geolocalisation, conditions and financing models. They have identified their weaknesses in terms of geographical openness and are developing ideas on how to make the Open Science ecosystem even more inclusive and a truly “unlimited digital commons”.
