Open Science training courses

FOSTER Plus aims to contribute to a real and lasting shift in the behaviour of European researchers to ensure that Open Science (OS) becomes the norm. To this end, a key objective for the FOSTER project has been to develop a set of ten training courses targeted towards early career researchers.

The draft courses are now available. The training resource will be comprised of ten courses in the first instance but can be extended to include additional modules over the longer term.

Targeted at researchers, the courses will aim to progress researchers from being aware of Open Science to being able to put Open Science into practice in their daily workflows. The resource will not provide comprehensive coverage of all possible issues that may fall under a given course but rather will provide focussed, practical and, where relevant, discipline specific examples to try and answer some of the burning questions researchers have about practicing Open Science. Courses will include interactive content to ensure the training is engaging and that capability can be assessed for issue of a badge upon completion.

The courses we are currently developing include:

  1. What is Open Science?
  2. Best Practice in Open Research
  3. Open Peer Review
  4. Data Protection and Ethics
  5. Licensing
  6. Managing and Sharing Research Data
  7. Open source software and workflows
  8. Open Science and Innovation
  9. Open Access Publishing
  10. Sharing Preprints
