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.
