Open Science course for PhD’s
PhD candidates of Radboud University and Radboudumc can register themselves for the Open Science course, in which Open Access (OA) and Research Data Management (RDM) will be the main topics to be discussed.
As part of the Open Science movement, the topics of Open Access publishing and Research Data Management attract a great deal of attention lately. Open Science in general, and OA and RDM in particular, contribute to a more open way of conducting science, which allows for improved reuse of scientific findings (via open access publishing) and research data (via proper data management). At the Radboud University, OA publishing and the transparent handling and storage of research data - both during research and at publication - are an essential part of conducting research. All research institutes have formulated a policy on RDM.
Prepare yourself for a future that is Open
Training in Open Science allows you, as a PhD candidate, to prepare yourself in the best way regarding your own future OA publications (how to adhere to requirements, how to find suitable OA journals/platforms, and how to bypass predatory journals) and proper management of your data during research and at publication (by drafting a data management plan (DMP)).
Course form and dates
This course will be held in four seminars from November 7th until November 17th. Participants will get acquainted with the basics of Open Science, divided into various blocks of information, via demos, plenary sessions, working in small groups, assignments and so on. One of the products is a first version DMP, to be used as a discussion document for your supervisors on all aspects of RDM.
