Digital Scholar Webinar: Transparent, Open, and Reproducible Research


There is a growing interest in transparency, openness, and reproducibility as mechanisms to advance the credibility and utility of the scientific enterprise. This webinar will introduce open science to a clinical and translational research audience. It will begin by introducing the opportunities and challenges motivating the wider open science movement, such as accelerating scientific discovery, broadening access to scientific knowledge, and irreproducibility. It will then provide an overview of core open science practices for health researchers to adopt. Lastly, it will overview actions other key stakeholders in the scientific ecosystem can take to support open science. This webinar is recommended for graduate research students, postdoctoral scholars, university faculty, and other scientific professionals with influence over the research lifecycle and incentives in the scientific ecosystem.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify factors motivating the transition from closed to open science
  • Explain how transparency is intended to foster the integrity of the scientific enterprise Access recommended materials on learning and applying best practices for conducting transparent and replicable research
