Open Research - publications, data and beyond (RS)
About this course:
This course will be delivered ONLINE and a joining link will be sent to you beforehand.
Open research comprises openness throughout the research cycle, through collaborative working and sharing, and making research methodology, software, code, and equipment freely available online, along with instructions for using it.
Open research includes making publications freely available online (open access), in addition to the underlying research data (open data).
Open access to research publications and research data makes them more visible.
This can lead to greater impact, higher citations, and can stimulate new research opportunities and collaborations.
