Introduction to Open Science. How to practice science in an accessible, transparent and reusable way (FM V-5)

WWB Area | Learning field
Research Management I Transfer

Starting point
Research is increasingly expected to produce outcomes that are developed for and with society, that are well documented and accessible within and beyond a scientific community, and thus, respond to social challenges and make a real impact. Open Science is committed to ensuring that the entire research cycle shifts towards openness, thereby advancing good scientific practice. Its principles include and range from Open Educational Resources (OER), Open Access (OA), Open Peer Review, Open Source, Open Methodology to Open Data.

Participants get familiar with Open Science core elements and practices. They learn how to integrate these practices efficiently into their own research workflow and how to make their work FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable). In this context, participants reflect on what Open Science can accomplish in general and how it may advance their own research.


  • Relevance & potential of Open Science, how Open Science can advance the own research
  • Open Science principles and resources
  • Brief introduction to Open Access, Open Data Management (ODM), exchange of best practices, Open Source Hardware
  • Overview of commonly used Digital Open Science Tools (DOSTs)
  • Guidelines and incentives for Open Science by national and international science authorities (European Commission, DFG, NSF, etc.)
  • Comparative investigation of guidelines and incentives for Open Science practices by publishers

Trainer input, group discussion, exchange of experience und best practices, group and individual exercises. Max. number of participants: 15

The course is targeted at persons who seek an introduction to Open Science and guidance how to apply its principles to their own work. No previous knowledge is required.
Student workers are welcome to apply, subject to availability.
