Abstract
Abstract

In this paper, we initiate a discussion within the Canadian political science community about research openness and its implications for our discipline. This discussion is important because the Tri-Agency has recently released guidelines on data management and because a number of political science journals, from several subfields, have signed the Journal Editors’ Transparency Statement requiring data access and research transparency (DA-RT). As norms regarding research openness develop, an increasing number and range of journals and funding agencies may begin to implement DA-RT-type requirements. If Canadian political scientists wish to continue to participate in the global political science community, we must take careful note of and be proactive participants in the ongoing developments concerning research openness.

Résumé

Dans cet article nous amorçons une discussion au sein de la communauté canadienne de science politique sur l'ouverture de la recherche et ses incidences pour notre discipline. Cette discussion est importante en raison de la publication récente des lignes directrices sur la gestion des données par les trois organismes ainsi que de la déclaration souscrite par plusieurs journaux de science politique, dans plusieurs sous-domaines, prônant l'accessibilité des données et la transparence en recherche (DA-RT). À mesure que les normes concernant les pratiques d'ouverture s’élaborent, un éventail et un nombre croissant de revues spécialisées et d'organismes de financement de la recherche peuvent commencer à mettre en œuvre des exigences de type DA-RT. Si les politologues canadiens souhaitent continuer à faire partie de la communauté mondiale de science politique, il convient de prendre soigneusement note des évolutions en cours concernant l'ouverture de la recherche et en être des participants proactifs.
