Brief description: The Open Science movement, which aims to make scientific research, data, and dissemination more transparent and accessible, is gained increasing traction in the scientific community. Despite general enthusiasm for Open Science, researchers are often faced with unresolved questions and an ever-increasing arsenal of tools and standards. This one-day workshop aims to introduce current topics in Open Science spanning pre-registration, data sharing, reproducible research, and open publication. The workshop also provides a platform for discussion and the opportunity to share experiences across all aspects of Open Science.
You can watch videos of the talks here.
Below please find the slides for each of the 10 talks. For further questions regarding the content please contact the relevant speaker directly.
