Open Science Workshop: Open Publishing and Data Sharing

200 College Street

The CREATE for BioZone program invites you to a Workshop on Open Science focusing on Open Publishing and Data Sharing.

One of the goals of the BioZone CREATE is to accelerate the rate of innovation through the promotion of Open Science principles. Broadening access to scientific publications and data is at the heart of open science. This ensures that research outputs are in the hands of as many as possible, and potential benefits are widely distributed. The benefits of Open Science include accelerated scientific enquiry and discovery, more accurate verification of scientific results, and reduced duplication of scientific research.

At this workshop, you will learn about open publishing, pre-print servers & data sharing, FAIR principles, Creative Commons, open science policies in government and open laboratory notebooks.
