Open Science Toolkit

Discipline: Transferable Skills

In 2018, the European Commission-funded project Facilitating Open Science Training for European Research (FOSTER) launched an online training toolkit with ten modules covering key topics of Open Science theory and practice. The introductory to advanced levels modules introduce OS and components of OS, including practical tips for getting started with OS, and provide information on general and discipline-specific tools and resources. 

As research is an essential part of higher education, this toolkit (and its current adaptation) aims to help equip students in higher ed with the Open Science Skills they need to navigate the waters of the modern research environment of the Digital Age. There are ten core modules:  

1. What is Open Science? 

2. Best Practice in Open Research 

3. Managing and Sharing Research Data

4. Open Source Software and Workflows

5. Data Protection and Ethics 

6. Open Licensing 

7. Open Access Publishing 

8. Sharing Preprints

9. Open Peer Review

10. Open Science and Innovation 

Each module comprises various resources, including videos, research articles, dummy datasets, and quizzes.
