Open in Practice is a free conference on the theme of Open Research for researchers in the sciences and the humanities, hosted by the University of Reading.

*Click here for conference programme*

What is Open Research and why is it important? How do you do it? What does it cost? What’s in it for you? What are the examples that can inspire you, and the methods you can adopt in your own research practice?

This conference will explore how researchers can incorporate Open Research methods in their research practice, and the benefits that this can bring. It will showcase inspiring examples of Open Research in the sciences and the humanities, and present strategies and methods that researchers can use to make their research more transparent and more effective. Guest speakers will include academic advocates and practitioners of Open Research, publishers and data specialists. There will be opportunities to network and share ideas throughout the day. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Topics to be discussed include: using open methods and materials; open access publishing and open peer review; open data and open software; tools and technologies for open research; digital humanities; open standards and formats; and open community initiatives.

The programme will feature:
  • inspirational talks from academics who have embraced Open Research ideas and practices in their research activities;
  • parallel sessions led by academics, publishers and the UK Data Archive presenting various Open methods and practices that can be incorporated into research practice;
  • an Open Question Time, with a guest panel taking audience questions on the merits and future possibilities of Open Research.
Join us to find out more about how you can use open methods to transform the way you work and to communicate your research effectively.
