VerVieVas, CC BY 3.0 ATOn September 20th 2017 the Vienna Principles Working Group of the Open Access Network Austria, AT2OA, Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft and Open Knowledge Austria organised the Open Science Workshop at the Austrian Central Library for Physics and Chemistry, which is a special subject library of Vienna’s University Library. This one day event was focussed on providing researchers, research support managers and librarians with information about the numerous Open Science tools and practices across the various scientific disciplines. For this, Jeroen Bosman and Bianca Kramer from Utrecht University gave an overview about the three phases of the research workflow: Phase #1: Preparation, Discovery and Analysis; Phase #2: Writing and Publishing and Phase #3: Outreach and Assessment. Furthermore they were talking about the varying Open Science tools, supporting scientists during the different stages of research process.
