FWF - Open Science Workshop in Vienna


20.09.2017, 09:00-17:00


The aim of the workshop is to provide researchers and administrators with hands-on examples of Open Science tools and workflow examples across various disciplines. We do not aim to discuss Open Science on a policy level, but rather want to help you discover what’s out there and how researchers can implement Open Science into their daily scientific routines. Together with the audience, we will explore open practices with respect to differences between scientific disciplines and show the added value that open approaches can generate for the researchers themselves



Open Science is disrupting traditional scientific workflows. This is changing how scientists collect their data, present and share their research, publish their findings, reach out to other communities and the public and assess the impact of their work. Many things have been written about Open Science on a policy level, but this workshop it not about policies. This workshop is about Open Science and you: what’s in it for you?



Bianca Kramer and Jeroen Bosman from Utrecht University will take you on a path to explore a variety of Open Science tools and practices along different phases of the scientific workflow:

Phase #1: Preparation, Discovery and Analysis

Phase #2: Writing and Publishing

Phase #3: Outreach and Assessment

Each individual phase will be introduced, discussed and exemplified by practical use cases. This will serve to see where you could apply Open Science tools and practices in your daily scientific routines, creating your own Open Science workflow.


This workshop is organized by the Vienna Principles Working Group of the Open Access Network Austria, AT2OA, Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft and Open Knowledge Austria
