Introduction to open scholarship
This course will cover best practices for managing your data to enable sharing with other researchers and useful software tools that will help you manage your data during the lifetime of your project. It will also cover topics such as open research, the FAIR data principles, new and emerging models for academic publishing and peer review.
Funding agencies, academic publishers and institutions all have policies outlining expected standards of research integrity and reproducibility. Although there are good intentions behind these policies it can be challenging to deal with the practical reality of running a research project according to these principles while also being mindful of data protection and security. This course is designed to help with that!
