This presentation intends to highlight the facts about open-source knowledge in scientific research, its importance and implications. The presentation also intends to dig out the source of the open-source learning and free distribution of knowledge. These sources would include a comprehensive overview of world-cultures and their standpoint on open-source learning and its outcomes. The future of open-source learning and knowledge in accordance with the present day research-scenario would also be presented with adequate references to the world cultures. In a nutshell, I would like to emphasize on the cultural aspect of open-source knowledge (Wikimedia Foundation) and its implications in scientific research.
