Open science has been defined as the practice of making everything in the research process from inception to publication, fully and openly available, creating transparency, and driving discovery by allowing others to build on existing work. Over the last few years, open science has become a global phenomenon geared towards promoting transparency and reproducibility in research, and facilitating secondary research. In this workshop, attendees will learn about initiatives driving open science both globally, and within a Canadian context. This workshop will also explore strategies that can be used to implement open science practices at each stage of the research process, and highlight open science tools that can be used to increase the transparency and reproducibility of their research.

This session will also help you to understand and comply with funder mandates for open access (like the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications).
