Open Science assessment

Every little bit counts

You have not directly experienced many of the challenges Open Science exists to combat—which is great news!

Based on your responses, Open Science practices could help to improve your experience as a career researcher in small but important ways. For example Open Science can:

  • make it easier to comply with funder requirements
  • offer a little more flexibility when it comes to sharing your own work
  • give you a little more insight and confidence in the studies you read
  • you might even be able to help others make similar progress in their research environment.
