Open Science: Following the Roadmap for Research – Focus on Transparency – Nov. 9, 2021

Session Description

This is the second session in the University of Toronto Libraries (UTL) hosted virtual series, Open Science: Following the Roadmap for Research, for the month of November. Each session is guided by one of the 5 principles of open scholarship as outlined in the "Roadmap for Open Science", published by the Government of Canada (Feb. 2020). This session will Focus on Transparency. 

Sharing scientific outputs at different points across the research cycle and in ways that allow for discovery, access, and reuse is fundamental to increasing transparency in science. This session will examine the importance of sharing research findings to allow for public access and engagement, particularly for results that inform decision-making and impact public policy.
