Course on Open, Reproducible and Transparent Science in Ecology

Living Norway Course on Open, Reproducible and Transparent Science in Ecology to take place on November 13-17, 2023 at Hjerkinn Vandrerhjem Dovrefjell, Norway.

Why Research Course on Open, Reproducible and Transparent Science in Ecology?

Developing essential skills in data management, ensuring data is FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable), and making workflows truly reproducible is becoming instrumental in life science. For those who are eager to harness open-source tools like GitHub and R to achieve these goals, Living Norway has an exceptional opportunity!

Living Norway Ecological Data Network, embedded with the Norwegian node of the BioDT project partner, GBIF (Global Biodiversity Information Facility) organises a hands-on training course on methods and technologies designed to elevate research to new heights of openness, reproducibility, and transparency.

This unique workshop is a response to growing demands from universities, journals, and funding organizations for enhanced transparency and data accessibility in scientific research. It revolves around the complete data lifecycle, spanning everything from planning, management, collection, curation, analysis, publication, storage, sharing, and reusing of data. 

The course is intended primarily for postgraduate students (with priority given to PhD students) and early-career researchers in the domain of ecology.
