Organization: GIRES-Global Institute for Research Education & Scholarship
GIRES, the Global Institute for Research Education & Scholarship dedicated to interdisciplinarity aims to engage in the exploration of the implementations and applications of Open Science. The conference aims to bring together researchers, scholars, practitioners, and policymakers to explore and promote the principles of reproducibility and open science in academic research across various disciplines.
This multifaceted conference wishes to focus on the promotion of Research Transparency by fostering discussions on the importance of research transparency, including sharing data, methods, materials, and analytical procedures to enable the reproducibility of research findings.
The best practices for the Reproducible Research are of great interest and we hope to showcase and discuss the best practices, tools, and techniques for conducting reproducible research, including pre-registration, version control, data management, and documentation.
Open Access and Open Data are also in the spectrum and we wish to explore the benefits, challenges, and ethical considerations associated with open access publishing, open data sharing, and the democratization of scientific knowledge. The Collaboration and Replication Studies will be in part of the conference in order to validate and build upon existing research, fostering a culture of scientific rigor and advancement.
In addition, Data Sharing and Data Management is a field of great significane and hopefully will address the challenges and opportunities of sharing research data, including data privacy, data governance, data citation, and long-term data preservation. Similarly we wish to examine the role of funding agencies, institutions, and academic policies in promoting and incentivizing reproducibility and open science practices through the further exploration of potential Institutional Support and the interconnected Policies.
Topics for presentations and discussions may include, but are not limited to:
– Reproducible research methodologies and best practices
– Open access publishing and open peer review
– Data sharing and data management in research
