Workshop zu Open Science mit Rima-Maria Rahal


This is a hands-on workshop on Open Science. The workshop introduces the idea of using Open Science from perspectives of philosophy of science, incentives and situational determinants, introducing a balanced view on the role of Open Science in contemporary scientific work. We then address practical solutions for integrating Open Science in our own scientific contributions, exploring possibilities from pre-registering empirical work to sharing data and materials, using open soft- and hardware to publishing openly and using openly accessible educational materials.
By the end of the course, participants will have considered practical and philosophical perspectives on Open Science, and will be familiar with application-ready knowledge about tools and techniques to use Open Science practices in their own work throughout the research cycle.


Participants are requested to bring a laptop that can be connected to the internet to be able to participate in the practical aspects of the workshop.
