Module 1 - Open Science

Module Description

Open Science is a way of conducting research whereby the methods, data, and/or publications of a research project are opened up by researchers via digital technology for public scrutiny and use. This webinar will introduce the what, how, and why of Open Science. We will look at how broad or narrow the concept of Open Science can be defined, what the spectrum of Open Science practices is that researchers can engage with, and what potential motivations and barriers might make it easier or harder for researchers to actually practise Open Science.

  • Apply relevant principles and practices of Open Science to your own research
