Research Bites 2018: Open Science at Aston

Open Science at Aston

Wednesday 15th August
Leigh Stork, Open Access & Research Repository Specialist, and Ammar Wahid, Research Data Management Specialist

The ‘Open Science’ agenda at Aston is an important feature of the University’s international research standing.  It is a concept that incorporates open access publishing, open data and online researcher profiles, amongst other aspects.  It also covers both STEM and AHSS areas.  In this session you will learn about what Aston is doing to fulfil the Open Science agenda – one which benefits individual researchers as well as the institution at large, benefits other researchers around the world, meets funders’ requirements, and ensures successful preparation for the next Research Excellence Framework, Ref2021, along with how you should be involved.
