ABOUT THE RESOURCE
Open science is a research approach that opens up access to all aspects of research while the research is in process (including lab notes and methodology, raw data and analysis), and encourages collaboration among researchers. It incorporates open data (making research data freely available online) and open access (free, online access to research outputs such as articles and books or monographs).
Opening up research means a fundamental change to the way research is done, generating huge need for training to enable researchers to practise open science.
This two-page brochure, based on a feature article originally published in EIFL’s 2018 Annual Report, describes the impact of EIFL’s open science training at universities and research institutes in Africa and Europe.
