Please join the IUPUI Open Science Coalition for a half-day workshop on the theme of “Open By Design: Re-Imagining the Academic Research Process.” The program will include a lecture by Dr. Erin McKiernan, who wrote a 2017 article for PLoS Biology titled ‘Imagining the “open” university: Sharing scholarship to improve research and education.’ Her article primarily discusses the benefits and challenges of creating an open university in the twenty-first century, in addition to providing low-cost solutions to the challenges she sees. McKiernan is an internationally known open scholarship advocate, in addition to being a highly successful physicist.
A roundtable discussion forum to find innovative ways that open ideas can be used to enhance university life will follow Dr. McKiernan’s lecture. These ideas will include open science concepts such as research transparency and reproducibility, as well as broader open scholarship concerns such as open access to journal articles. The world of academic research is changing rapidly, and we hope that this workshop and lecture will encourage attendees to envision a university that seeks to inherently create and benefit from open scholarship.
A catered buffet lunch will be provided.
