The development of open science aligns with open source software and hardware in both philosophy and practice. By keeping open, engineers can share codes and scientists can share research design. There is a layer of ethical concern in keeping our works open – so that transparency is ensured. However, there are costs and challenges in keeping open. Open codes and data need storage spaces. Human labor is necessary to keep the open information in order. How to keep codes secure and how to protect research subjects’ privacy in such open practices need to be carefully thought through and painstakingly implemented. This panel aims to bring both scientists and FOSS practitioners into one virtual room, exchanging experience and inspiring each other to address common concerns. Issues to be discussed include, but are not limited to: 1. From a replication crisis to a development crisis 2. Publish materials, data, and code 3. Preregister and submit registered reports 4. Conduct replications 5. Collaborate 6. Foster skills to be open 7. Implement Transparency and Openness Promotion Guidelines 8. Incentivize practices to be open
