Translate Science is a working group that wants to exchange information, lobby, and build tools to make translations of scientific articles/reports/books, abstracts, titles, and terms more accessible and (thus) stimulate the production of such translations. Read more about our work at translatescience.org We recorded this episode in mid-November 2022. Shortly […]
By implementing Open Science principles throughout your research practice, you
- Increase the discoverability of your work
- Establish yourself as an expert in your research field
- Make your academic achievements openly accessible and reusable
- Discover research results relevant to your discipline
- Build a professional network around the world
- Increase the societal impact of your work
- Contribute to globally inclusive scholarly knowledge exchange
Open Science is nothing more and nothing less than a compendium of region- and discipline-specific aspects of Good Scientific Practices (GSP) in the digital age and goes back to practices postulated in the 17th century. Its principles include and range from Open Educational Resources (OER), Open Access (OA), Open Peer Review, Open Source Hardware & Software, Open Methodology, and Open Data. To ensure scientific processes and results are well documented and accessible is at the core of Open Science.
In order to identify what it takes for your research procedures and results to be shared and applied openly, we will discuss options and possibilities of Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) data in light of the CARE principles as well as aspects and principles of Open Access, Open Data Management (ODM) and exchange best practices how to communicate your research outcomes to various audiences.
