    Open Science Policies Learning Path

    This learning path indents to introduce a potential user of open science initiatives or a service provider to the open science policies, mainly a description of FAIR data, ORDM, and how one can use the Repol tool to generate policy documents.

    How to proceed:


    1. Follow the cards that will take you on a journey of different Open Science topics in several courses provided. 
    2. Complete each card by answering the short questions.
    3. Take the quiz to complete the learning path and test your knowledge. If you pass the quiz successfully you will gain the Open Science badge.
    1. Understand open science and its relevant policies
    2. Know about an Open Research Data Management plan?
    3. Understand the FAIR principles
    4. Learn what is and how to use the RePol tool
    5. Learn what is and host to use the LCT tool

  • In general, Open Science strives to make research outcomes, such as online publications, online data and datasets, services such as web applications or online repositories open to other researchers and the general public.
    In order for Open Science to become a reality, certain policies and guidelines should be followed. First and foremost, any information that goes online (publications, data, repositories, services...

  • A research data management plan (DMP) is a formal document that outlines how to handle research data both during your research and after the research project is completed. The plan is important as an indicator of which data should be kept long term, once a project is completed. Research Data management comprises the disciplines related to managing research data as a valuable resource. These can include, but are not limited to, research...

  • FAIR data are data which meet the principles of findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability. The FAIR principles emphasize machine-actionability (i.e., the capacity of computational systems to find, access, interoperate, and reuse data with none or minimal human intervention) because humans increasingly rely on computational support to deal with data as a result of the increase in volume, complexity, and creation...

  • RePol – Repository Policy Generator is an open-source web application that guides users through the process of defining policies for repositories and web-based services. It helps in defining and maintaining comprehensive and clear repository and privacy policies. Generated privacy policies are suitable for any kind of service. RePol uses a step-by-step wizard and self-explanatory forms to guide users through the process. By choosing options in a form, users shape a policy document with predefine...

  • LCT comes as a response to the increased demand for providing technical solutions to address legal aspects in FAIR and Open RDM (ORDM). It is, thus, intended to support researchers to publish in FAIR/open modes and data managers to compete against untidy, messy, and not well-defined data ensuring the maximal re-use of data. It is a certification tool for complementing the trustworthiness of resources contained in open platforms, such as repositories, a...
