- It is easier to combine information from different disciplines.
- In Opasnet, information is organised in a clever, standardised way.

- There are no gatekeepers. Anyone is allowed to contribute.
- A cacophony is prevented by dealing with specific questions.
- The specificity makes it easy to identify and remove irrelevant contributions.
- There are explicit rules for dealing with disputes.
- Discussion rules are fairly straightforward, making it possible to agree on what is known or agreed upon and what is not.
- Information is collected quicker.
- You don't need to get elected or graduate before you can contribute to a policy analysis or a scientific issue.
- The monopolies of scientists and politicians are broken down.
- We are all responsible for improving the world. We must not wait for the professionals to do it. Opasnet is a workspace to do the job.
- All good, existing practices can still be used.
- Open assessment does not force to abandon any good practices. It offers an alternative to some.
- The role of the scientific method is emphasised.
- The scientific method (i.e., asking question, proposing answers, and critically evaluating them) is a major reason why science has been so successful. Opasnet offers a workspace to apply this in both science and policy in an enhanced mode.
- The work focuses better on main issues.
- The "enhanced mode" means that many tasks and work phases are simply left out because they are not needed in Opasnet.
