Research Integrity from Inception through Dissemination Workshop Series: Spring 2023


Open Science is a set of practices to make research more transparent, reproducible, equitable, and collaborative by increasing accessibility and reusability of research outputs. Open Science, also referred to as Open Research or Open Scholarship, is relevant across all disciplines. Open Science practices can be implemented throughout the research lifecycle, from sharing data, code, and methods to open access publishing to citizen science. In these Spring 2023 workshops we will celebrate the federal Year of Open Science.

The 1st workshop provides an overview of what open science is, how it relates to the changing funding policy landscape, the range of open science practices that researchers can engage with, and potential benefits and barriers to practicing open science. Participants will learn about practices that comprise open science; be able to identify what open practices they already incorporate into their research workflows; and explain the potential benefits and barriers of open science practices in their work.
