The concept of ‘open research’ has made a significant impact on scholarly activities, with funding councils, government and publishers increasingly placing a focus on research that is transparent, accountable, and accessible to a worldwide audience.
Current expectations in this area centre around Open Access to scholarly outputs and Research Data Management. This workshop will provide an introductory overview and will cover:

  • How open research can impact on each stage of the research lifecycle
  • The benefits of Open Access and how to comply with requirements
  • The importance of the Data Management Plan (DMP) in meeting funder requirements
  • How to publish underlying research data and cite it via a Data Access Statement
  • Balancing openness with the need to capitalise on research findings
