These lessons give an overview of the principles underpinning the objectives, policies, and practice of Open Science, including several representative policy documents that will be increasingly relevant to neuroscience research.
Open Science: Practices and Policies
The FOSTER portal has produced a number of guides to help implement Open Science practices in daily workflows, including The Open Science Training Handbook. It provides many basic definitions, concepts, and principles that are key components of open science, as well as general guidance for developing and implementing these practices in one's own research environments.
This lecture provides reviews some standards for project management and organization, including motivation from the view of the FAIR principles and improved reproducibility.
This lesson provides information on developing data management plans (DMPs), including an overview of how DMPs contribute to effective research efforts, as well as specific development resources and DMP examples.
In this session, participants will take an in-depth look at the newly launched DMP Assistant 2.0, including all of its enhanced key features for both end-users and institutional administrators, as well as a brief look at the future of the platform.
In February 2020, the Canadian government published its "Roadmap for Open Science" to provide overarching principles and recommendations to guide Open Science activities in federally funded scientific research. It outlines broad guidelines for making science in Canada open to all while respecting privacy, security, ethical considerations, and appropriate intellectual property protection.
