The Open science approach is based on collaborative knowledge generation, and it makes accessible scientific development to the public domain through networks using advanced technologies and collaborative tools. COVID-19 pandemic put the global scientific community from different disciplines to contribute their disciplinary perspectives and research approach to address the complex issues. This pandemic has witnessed a changing scientific culture among the scientists and scholarly publishers towards a more open science approach through sharing scientific data or statistics, adoption of quick review and more accessibility by lifting paywall by journal publishers to fight the pandemic more collaboratively. The present study aims to provide an overview of the open science approach among scientists and particularly its significance in scientific communication during this current COVID-19 pandemic.
