Open Science Series: Open Collaboration
Open Science is a researcher-driven movement in which the practice of research is increasingly transparent, collaborative, and continuous. It’s a system of inquiry in which research data, lab notes, and other processes are freely-available under terms that enable reuse, redistribution, and reproduction of research and its underlying data and methods. Broadly, Open Science is a discipline agnostic approach to enhancing the research process through the sharing of knowledge and methods, wider collaboration, and increased rigor. Each workshop in this series introduces a particular theme of Open Science and walks through several tools and resources to help open your own research workflows, regardless of academic discipline. Open Collaboration introduces the principles of this Open movement and investigates its impact on Science and research.
This workshop includes opportunities for discussion and reflection on Open Science principles and ideas for devising concrete ways for improving open practices locally in a department, institute, or lab environment. Researchers will learn about the idea of working openly and collaboratively and will be able to evaluate the use of tools like GitHub and the Open Science Framework.
