Open Research

Making research more accessible, transparent and reproducible

About Open Research

Open research applies the principles of openness across the research cycle, from inception to design, data collection, analysis and dissemination.

Open research practices include sharing research methods, data, code and software, pre-prints, publications and other research outputs under an open licence, as well as the pre-registration of study plans, science communication and citizen science. Adopting these practices can increase the rigour, transparency and reproducibility of our research, promote collaboration and inclusivity and enhance public trust in the research we do.

The University therefore encourages researchers to incorporate open research practices into their workflows to make their processes and outputs 'as open as possible, as closed as necessary' (see our Institutional Position Statement on open research.)
