The forthcoming Edinburgh Open Research Conference (EOR) will take place on Wednesday 29th May 2024. While the conference will be hybrid, we ask that all contributors attend in person.
Edinburgh University is committed to making Open Research the new normal and a vital part of achieving that is by contributing to positive culture change within research. But how do we and other institutions go about this?
So, this year, we are asking the question:
How can Open Research contribute to positive Culture Change in Research more broadly?
The focus will be on the role of Open Research in changing research culture for the better. We will come together to ask how principles of FAIRness, reproducibility, recognition, integrity, and participation can steer us towards a healthier, more vibrant research environment. We will also consider the underlying factors that can drive research culture change in all its forms, how we can measure progress, and how Open Research intersects with other aspects of research culture that involve a shift in research value, behaviour, expectations and attitudes such as EDI, health and working patterns.
The three central themes of the conference will be:
- Next Generation Metrics
- Research Integrity
- Education and Skills
But we also welcome contributions addressing the other Pillars of Open Science; FAIR Data, Scholarly Communications, Reward & Recognition, Citizen Science, & EOSC
We are seeking the following types of contributions addressing this question in the form of:
- Talks (15mins)
- Lightning Talks (5 mins)
We are keen for an array of speakers from a range of backgrounds (academic, professional services, and students). We especially welcome contributions from early career researchers, junior professional services staff, and technicians.
