In this session we will introduce you to the Office for Open Research at our University, highlighting some of the recently funded Open Research activities supported via our Open Research Fellowships and our Open Research Accelerator funding scheme. We will also cover some of the recent activities of the UK Reproducibility Network that have been led by our University, and signpost upcoming Open Research events organised by our University's grass roots Open Research group.
Open research is a movement to make the research process more transparent, by advocating for the adoption of a broad range of research practices. The goal is to make research more robust, addressing concerns around reproducibility and research integrity. Open research is increasingly expected by research funders, and is supported by organisations including UKRI, the Wellcome Trust and the European Commission. Central to the open research movement is working to create a responsible research environment valuing equality, diversity and inclusion. It is relevant to the public, who are able to freely read a greater proportion of the scientific literature thanks to the open access publishing movement. Open Research also aims to improve scientific efficiency, since advocating for the free flow of information allows researchers to freely build on the work of others.
Our speakers are:
1. Andrew Stewart (Institutional Lead for Open and Reproducible Research, Professor of Cognitive Science)
2. Scott Taylor (Head of Research Services and the Office for Open Research)
The session will be chaired by Nicky Cullum (Associate Dean for Research and Innovation, Health Sciences).
