HLABC Open Science Framework Workshop + AGM May 30th 9am-1pm

Please join us for a hands-on Open Science Framework workshop and the HLABC Annual General Meeting on Thursday May 30th @ Woodward Library’s Sherrington Room 9:00am-1pm.

Sarah Parker, Engineering Librarian (including Biomedical Engineering) at Woodward Library and also a member of the UBC Open Scholarship Committee , will offer a workshop on using the Open Science Framework (OSF). The OSF is an open source, simple to use, web application that supports the research workflow. It integrates existing tools and technologies, linking to multiple platforms, including Google Drive, Dataverse, GitHub, and Mendeley. It also supports pre-registration and pre-print portals.

In this workshop, we will address some of the aspects that characterize Open Science and how tools like the OSF can help mitigate issues of openness, transparency, and reproducibility in research. Some possible applications for our work include using OSF for protocols and to make our own work more open.
