Case Studies

Here are 3 case studies that can be used in short workshops to stimulate discussion about open science principles and practical actions. The case studies outline 3 scenarios loosely tied to aspects of open access, open data, and public engagement. The scenarios are composites of real life situations and dilemmas...

How to guide - Public dialogue

A public dialogue is a qualitative research process during which public audiences interact with a variety of experts to deliberate on issues relevant to future strategy or policy decisions. A public dialogue provides an opportunity for organisations to gather public views to inform their activities so that they are aligned with society, particularly relevant for publicly funded research organisations. They should provide a balanced view of the topic, include factual information, and space to discuss opinions and societal/ethical considerations. Dialogues give everyone the chance to speak, to question and be questioned, to develop their own views and opinions, allowing in- depth discussions and offer insight into the reasoning behind people’s decisions.

Open Science Researcher Checklist

How can you make your science more open? The ORION training team has developed a step-by-step checklist for researchers to assess where they can make changes to open science practices in their day-to-day research.
