Open Science Summerschool 2019

From August 26th-30th, Utrecht University will host the 3rd edition of the summer school course ‘Open Science and Scholarship – changing your research workflow’ (click here for last year’s programme).

This one-week, full-time course that will take place in Utrecht is aimed at researchers of all disciplines and career levels, interested in learning how to make open science integral part of their own research practice.

We will use participants’ own workflow and outputs as starting point (from getting funding to doing your research in the open, making your research more visible and being rewarded for openness). We will alternate between theory, discussing that theory and immediately putting that theory into practice. The course will touch on open science goals and funding, open access, open data, open peer review, assessment, reproducibility, doing outreach and more.

At the end of the course, you will have a toolbox of practical approaches towards making your research more open and you will already have started applying some of them. You will also have a better understanding of the benefits of doing so, and how to deal with existing barriers towards open science and scholarship.  

The course will also enable you to continue the conversation about open science at your department, as all course materials will be made available for reuse.

This year, the course is aimed at researchers at Utrecht University. Participation is free of charge to members of the Open Science Community Utrecht.

Interested in participating?
