Understanding Open Research for HSS

What to expect at the event

Research funders, institutions and publishers are increasingly talking about Open Research. As a broad term which encourages accessibility, transparency and reproducibility of research and supporting information, Open Research includes the practices of sharing data, code, preprints, methods, or working in new ways such as Registered Reports.

In this webinar, aimed at researchers in the Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS), we will present the core tenets of open research and contextualise HSS within open research. We will then discuss the opportunities and challenges for HSS in moving to more open research practices, as well as how concepts of openness can apply to HSS research data.
