We are a group of researchers, educators, students, and librarians who are interested in promoting Open Science at Freie Universität Berlin. We welcome like-minded people from all disciplines and parts of the university to exchange open science views, news, and skills.
To get the community started, we organised two Open Science related events in the summer term of 2019:
Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Open Science and Open Scholarship on June 6 -- We discussed the meaning of Open Science across different fields represented at the Freie Universität;
Practices of Open Science and Open Scholarship on July 4 -- We learned about existing Open Science related projects at the Freie Universität.
Please visit the group’s public wiki for more information.
Open Science aims to make all parts of the research cycle as accessible as possible for as many people as possible. It applies to all disciplines, the sciences and the humanities, from archaeology to zoology. Open Science includes (but is not limited to):
Transparent and reproducible research
Open access to research publications
Research data sharing
Open source research software
Open educational resources
Open lab notebooks
