Transform Your Research: The Why and How of Open Science

June 2024

New Training Series Begins September 26

Practical Approaches For Your Institution

Are you a professional supporting or conducting research? You have heard of open research and open science but maybe aren’t sure how to apply these practices within your institution? NISO’s Fall Training Series is a comprehensive course on open research and scholarship, designed to help you navigate this transformative landscape.

Using the research cycle as a framework, this course will help you navigate the open science landscape in lively, information-packed sessions. Throughout the course, you will delve into key topics such as research preparation, public engagement, and citizen science. We will cover pre registration, reproducibility issues, open code, and open data. You’ll learn about preprints, open access, publication strategies, open peer review, and the role of metadata in monitoring and assessment.

Our sessions combine presentations, demonstrations, hands-on exploration, and discussions. By the end of the course, you’ll have gained valuable insights and practical ideas to incorporate open research perspectives and practices into your own role and context.

This course is led by Bianca Kramer and Jeroen Bosman, librarians at Utrecht University Library who have been internationally lauded over the past decade for their commitment to openly sharing their knowledge on open science and digital scholarly communication with the wider scholarly community. This is a unique opportunity to learn directly from notable industry leaders in an engaging virtual classroom setting.

The course will run on the following dates: September 26 through November 21, with no class the week of October 24. Each session will be recorded, and links to the archived recordings will be available to all registrants.

Join us to understand the why of open research and open science, recognize their diversity, and apply this knowledge to enhance your professional practice. This course is ideal for researchers, librarians, data managers, and other professionals committed to advancing open research and scholarship.
