Open science is the platform for the science or scientific outputs that need to be managed transparently from the beginning to the end and be accessible to the society. This concept covers many components incluing open research data, open scholarly communication, and open access. Furthermore, several policies have been issued to provide a proper platform for open science in countries due to the importance and upon their capacities. Thus, the purpose of this study is to provide a model for open science facilitator policies in Iran, conducted with a qualitative approach based on focus groups of researchers and experts in open science. The findings demonstrated that concerning the current country’s environment, open science policies have to consider five main categories at this stage namely identifying the nature of science, removing barriers, motivating, separating open science according to the components, and performance level. Afterward, the proposed model of the policies based on the STEEP (V) analytical model with six environmental, technological, social, economic, political, and value aspects was presented along with related policy recommendations. Considering openness and providing facilitators for the science ecosystem is essential and this should be reflected in science, technology, and innovation policies.
