In the past couple of decades, the credibility of science has been questioned, with many studies not finding the same results when repeated. This included medical fields like cancer research where only 50% of studies were reproduced.
This showed the need to make our science better: more reproducible, transparent, and open. These are the key principles of open science, an emerging field trying to improve our research.
However, it can seem daunting to undertake the task of learning about open science by yourself. In this two-days course, we will introduce you to the why, how, and when of open science.
This course is offered by the Rotterdam R.I.O.T. science club, a grassroots initiative which promotes open science.
Understand what open science is, its principles, and history, as well as why it is instrumental in achieving higher quality, integrity, equity, and diversity in science.
Leverage certain open science practices and tools in your own research
Evaluate open science benefits and difficulties
