Background to this series of talks

Introduction to Open Research for Postgraduate Researchers

In your research, you may have come across terms like ‘reproducibility’, ‘replication crisis’ and ‘open access’ but weren’t sure what they mean. These terms are features of ‘Open Research’, which is a collection of research concepts and practices that have emerged in recent years as a central feature of high quality research across many disciplines of science, social science and humanities.

Open Research, interchangeable with Open Science, is the idea that the research community and the public are best served by research being open and transparent at every stage of the research process: conceptualisation, data collection, discovery and dissemination. These fundamental principles apply irrespective of discipline.

Features of open research include:

  • Ensuring rigour in scientific methods
  • Transparency throughout the research process
  • Making research data, code and tools available to all in citable forms
  • Open access publishing

The benefits of Open Research to individual researchers, disciplines, the global research community and the public include higher quality research outputs, better efficiency and collaboration within the research community and more fruitful engagement between researchers and the public. In recognition of these benefits, more research funders are requiring researchers to work in this way. Familiarity with Open Research is, therefore, a necessary skill set for the researchers of the future.
