Online workshop 27 May 14:00-15:00: The Future is Open!

The future is open! 
How Open Science Communities can help transition towards Open Science as the future modus operandi

Join our online workshop 27 May 14:00-15:00 CEST: ‘The future is open! How Open Science Communities can help transition towards Open Science as the future modus operandi’ by Vera Heininga

In this talk, Vera Heininga will first discuss what she understands by Open Science (what is it, but also above all: what is it not?). Then she will discuss Open Science Communities (OSCs), what it entails exactly and how OSCs in the Netherlands can help / support researchers in the transition to Open Science. For the latter, she will draw on a recent article that was recently accepted by the journal “Science and Public Policy” (see the preprint here: https://osf.io/preprints/metaarxiv/7gct9/download).

Bio:
Vera Heininga is the Open Science coordinator of the University of Groningen. She is a great fan of Open Science, meaning that she: loves research transparency; pre-registers her confirmatory analyzes a priori; uses Open Workflow Tools (e.g., R Markdown); publishes in Open Access journals; and makes her well-annotated programming code publicly available. Vera is also an interdisciplinary postdoc at the Faculty of Behavioral and Social Sciences of the University of Groningen, and co-founder of the Open Science Community Groningen (OSCG).

For whom: Students, researchers, policy makers, support staff

When?
Now, up until September 1st!

We welcome the submission of no more than 600 words in length that discuss the use of one or more open practices in the conduct of research and/or communication of outputs to achieve specific research aims or solve particular problems.

The case studies ideally explore the challenges of making open choices as well as those that celebrate positive experiences and successful open science practices.  Staff members and students can submit case studies. All submissions will be screened for eligibility by a jury. All eligible cases receive an Open Research Award certificate. In addition, three eligible cases will be randomly drawn by the jury; each of which will receive 500 euros to be used for research material, travel costs etc. For more information check the webpage https://www.rug.nl/library/open-research-award/ or contact us via openresearchaward@rug.nl
