The Open Science Uppsala logo
Welcome to the homepage of Open Science Uppsala, the local Open Science community in Uppsala.
Open Science is the application of the scientific method in the most transparent way possible, such as Open Access papers, Open (and FAIR) Data, Open Code, open peer-review, preregistration and registered reports, resulting in research that is (more likely to be) reproducible.
This group discusses the pros and cons of Open Science by means of discussing papers and inviting speakers.

Open Science is a different thing for different people. A attempt of a definition that could be given:
Open Science is using the scientific method, taking into account that scientists are human.

There are many, here I list communities that have members in Uppsala:
and I will happily add your online community here :-)
As the Open Science community in Uppsala is small. At the time this website was created, it was the first website.
To connect people that are interesting in learning more about Open Science.
See the newsletter archive for previous newsletters.
See the tweets archive for previous tweets.
You are boss here.
Here are some suggestions:
Half an hour before the meeting, you’ll have the time to prepare. The first 15 minutes, the audience comes in. Then you have 45 minutes left, that you can fill in yourself. For example, you can do 30 minutes of talking and 15 minutes of questions.
Note that you are boss here. If you want more/less time for questions, it will be so :-)
