Open Science 101: Getting started with open research tools and workflows Online









Class Overview

Unlike traditional models of science that produce articles locked behind a journal paywall, open science is about opening up the tools, processes, and products of science to make research more reproducible and equitable. Whether you are interested in sharing a preprint on bioRxiv, accessing research data from a public repository, sharing your RNASeq protocols on protocols.io, or getting credit for your analysis code, there are many ways to engage with open science.

This interactive, hands-on class will cover some of the most prevalent trends in open science including open access publishing, open research data, open protocols, and open code. We will introduce emerging biomedical funder and publisher requirements for open science, describe how you can get credit and citations for your work, and share best practices for integrating open science practices into your research workflow. Through a series of short activities you will also have a chance to explore some of the most relevant open science tools for your research.


Learning Objectives

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:
  • Describe the different practices associated with open science/open research

  • Identify an open science practice to adopt in their own work


This will be an online class via Zoom conferencing.
