It is a collection of diverse, thought-provoking, and visionary ideas. I congratulate all of the authors on their contribution and the time and effort they put into writing the short essays it contains. A few common themes were evident, including benefits to the following:• researchers in general;• researchers in the global south;• wider society;• the economy of countries operating open science policies.Another feature was a strong focus on open access, sometimes to the point ofusing open access and open research interchangeably. Perhaps this is a signal that open access has become well established, whereas other forms of open research require further development.The winning entries are presented first, followed by entries group roughly intothe topics above, although several essays mention multiple aspects. The competition was only open to those whose first language is not English and only minor language editing has taken place between submission and publication. Grammatical errors have been removed, but the original phrasing was retained where possible. As such, the ideas of these young researchers are presented in an unfiltered way that reflects their own choice of words, style of writing, and in particular their thoughts and emotions about the topic.Much effort was obviously undertaken to research the essays presentedhere, however thorough fact-checking has not taken place and minor errors andmisunderstandings may remain. While not intending to mislead, I believe the value of this book lies principally in the enthusiasm and vision of the essays, not as a reference work. I take responsibility for this editorial decision and errors should in no way detract from the efforts of the authors.Finally, this book is published in an open access format and free to downloadand read.

I hope readers will find theperspectives presented here useful and take advantage of the opportunity to reflect on how open research can develop for the benefit of all.",
