Organized by: Ottawa Hospital Research Institute / uOttawa

Science is currently dominated by a ‘closed’ research culture. Open science is a philosophical approach that includes a set of practices that seeks to change this to make research more accessible. At present, there are a variety of ongoing initiatives and policies that seek to embed open science in Canada. Despite stakeholders espousing the value of open science, there is a key challenge in terms of effective implementation. This panel will flag challenges and suggest steps toward implementing open science practices at Canadian universities and biomedical research institutions. It will discuss the connection between open science and research quality.
