Open access, open data, open source and other open scholarship practices
are growing in popularity and necessity. However, widespread adoption of
these practices has not yet been achieved. One reason is that researchers
are uncertain about how sharing their work will affect their careers. We
review literature demonstrating that open research is associated with
increases in citations, media attention, potential collaborators, job
opportunities and funding opportunities. These findings are evidence that
open research practices bring significant benefits to researchers relative
to more traditional closed practices.
