The path to open science contains many components. One of these components is open repositories with free access to researchers. With a strict open path, the repository is also based on Open Source Software. Open access policies are essential, as are open infrastructures and open contents. Repositories can support this openness by offering open licenses, open metadata, the possibility to use open formats and open thesaureses. Another principal point is transparency. Open peer review should be possible, and the description of processes should also be transparent. Of course, an open license should provide all data types and metadata as well.
