Increasingly, funders, publishers and institutions require researchers to work in an Open Science manner. This course offers an introduction in Open Science for students and researchers of all disciplines. There is no experience required with empirical research methods. You will be introduced to many Open Science tools and practices, and discover how external factors influence the options you have to work in a more open way. After this course, you will understand the why and how of Open Science and have hands-on experience with practicing Open Science and Scholarship in all stages of your research, including outreach and assessment.
Increasingly, funders, publishers and institutions require researchers to work in an Open Science manner. This course offers an introduction in Open Science for researchers of all disciplines. You will look at many different research practices across the full research cycle (from discovery, through analysis and writing, to publication, outreach and assessment), and explore the possibilities and benefits of making your own research more open in each stage.
Through short lectures and demos, many hands-on activities and in-depth discussions, you will be introduced to a variety of Open Science tools and practices, and gain insight into enabling and constraining factors that are at play for researchers who want to work in a more open way.
During the course, you will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge to your own research workflow and see what could work in your specific circumstances. This can include making research products from past projects more open, carrying out current projects in a more open way, and planning future open research projects.

We would like to facilitate attendance of prospective participants for whom the course cost is a prohibiting factor. To this end, we will have a number of waivers available that cover 75% of the course cost (excluding travel and housing). In your application, please indicate if you’d like to be eligible for such a waiver.
We strongly encourage participants that can cover the course cost through other means (e.g. institutional subsidy, training budget) to do so. Payment of the full course fee by those who are able makes it possible for us to increase the number of waivers available for those who need them.
When you apply for a waiver, we will contact you within one week to let you know whether your request can be fulfilled, depending on the number of applications.
The price of the course is based on expected expenses (facilities, compensation of co-lecturers, catering, and an initial number of waivers). We do not aim to make a profit from this course, and any surplus will be used to provide additional waivers.
