Open Science: Accountability, Integrity, and Reproducibility in Scholarly Research

Session Agenda

The global scientific ecosystem is multifaceted and relies heavily on rigorous, reproducible, and discoverable research studies. This increasingly complex and interconnected system is reinforced by Open Science that aims to make knowledge transparent and accessible using digital technologies, collaborative networks, and tools. Researchers need to apply the principles of openness at all the stages of their research cycle to promote transparency, integrity, collaboration, and reproducibility in scholarly research, and achieve significant breakthroughs. This webinar gives a detailed overview of the concept of Open Science and its core principles including Open Access, Open Data, Open Sources, and Open Peer Review. It will also help researchers adopt best practices to share their research outputs, resources, methods, or tools openly.

Through this webinar, researchers will have a better understanding of the following:

  • Overview and importance of Open Science
  • What is Open Access publishing?
  • The significance of Open Data sharing
  • Understanding the importance of self-archiving in Open Repositories
  • Insights into Open Peer Review and Open Licensing
