The valorization of knowledge generated in the Academy, funded almost exclusively by public funds, is measured by scholarly articles and the number of citations, which puts journals and publishers in a position to exploit this condition. This model is being revisited and is in the process of changing, not only including the search for new ways to measure Sciences and impact, but also includes a transition to a collaborative model.

Locally, this hypothesis has a number of points in its favour, such as discussing models from cross-discipline communication and scholarly communication to different target audiences. So, the first definition of open flag It is the opening of academic research towards other researchers and the community in public repositories of scholarly articles and materials derived from research projects, so that the data and knowledge generated are available, accessible, interoperable and reusable.

Actions promoted by the National Agency for Research and Development (ANID) through InES competitions open flagTo enhance these warehouses and generate value. As a complement, from the CTCI Node in the Greater South Central District along with undergraduate academics, led by UdeC, work is underway on projects to accelerate regional impact. Implementing this collaborative methodology to raise cross-regional and sectoral challenges, in tandem with science, allows us to propose a new definition of open science: as a tool for democratization Sciences to and from the community.

The goal is to gradually show the personalization of concepts Sciences by the community, establishing and defining formal channels of scholarly communication, and preparing the community to understand these concepts, where scholars and publishers are key to translating this knowledge into various applications and realities. A path we must follow from an early age, in order to move towards a more sustainable and collaborative society.
