The 2018 National Academies report “Open Science by Design: Realizing a Vision for 21st Century Research” discusses the global research enterprise and the movement of its stakeholders towards a new open science ecosystem. The report probes the motivations and limitations of allowing free access to scholarly publications, the data from scholarly research, and the methodologies, including code or algorithms that were used to generate those data. Openness and sharing of information are the critical factors that enable scientific progress and the effective functioning of the research enterprise.
Please join study director Tom Arrison in the third interactive webinar in the series as he reviews the key report findings and focuses on the implementation of two essential recommendations: 1) creating a culture that actively supports open science and 2) training students and other researchers to implement open science practices effectively. This webinar will also feature examples of institutional implementation of these two recommendations.
Webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other participants during the presentation.
