Open Science

We will learn about Open Science this semester by modeling its practice.  As students of science, you know there are several stages in the research process. Sharing your work openly with others- your ideas, your hypotheses, your methods, your data, your analyzed results, and of course also your research publications-  is what opening up science is all about.  This semester, as you work on your research project, I invite you to share what you are doing on your domain site.  The advantages of this are to be able to connect with and gain useful feedback from the scientific community that can help you develop your ideas, refine your methods, suggest analyses and help with interpretation.  Why do all of this alone or with just a few others? Being open can mean that we might “increase the integrity and reproducibility of research”.
