Understanding Open Research for STM

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 sciences, we will present the core tenets of open research and give relevant examples.

There will be time for discussion and Q&A.
