Five talents working in the Netherlands, each from a different field, answer five questions that will feature during Leiden European City of Science 2022. These questions are important not only for science, but for all curious people. And they help us think about a better world. These talents want to contribute to this themselves. One of these talents is Sarah Schrader, associate Professor of Osteoarchaeology at Leiden University. The answers the question 'how open is science and how open can it be?'.

Schrader: "Science today is much more open than it was ten years ago. At that time, scientists were hardly publishing in open access journals that can be accessed online free of charge. I couldn’t afford to publish in such journals eight years ago either".
