    Increasingly, funders, publishers and institutions require researchers to follow the principles of Open Science.
    But what does this mean and which consequences could it have on your career? How to deal with the obligation to deposit your raw data in an open repository? How to find a proper open access journal for the publication of your final results? How to get credit for your work as reviewer?
    This workshop is an introduction to Open Science for researchers of all disciplines. We will look at requirements as well as at many different initiatives across the full research cycle and teaching activity. We will explore the possibilities and benefits of making your own research and teaching more open at each stage.


    Workshop overview:

    1. What is Open Science and why is it relevant for your academic career?
    2. Open Access, Open Data, Open Peer Review, Open Educational Resources – which aspects of Open Science at which stage of your teaching and researching activities?
    3. What are requirements and policies of research funders and public institutions?
    4. Which tools and initiatives exist in your discipline?
    5. Which chances and possibilities exist to integrate Open Science in your career?
