Works in Progress Webinar: Supporting campus goals through a library-led Office for Open Research at the University of Manchester
The University of Manchester launched the Office for Open Research in April 2022, an ambitious effort to enable and embed open and reproducible research practices in alignment with institutional goals.
- Scott Taylor, Head of Research Services, Head of Office for Open Research, University of Manchester
The University of Manchester launched the Office for Open Research in April 2022, an ambitious effort to enable and embed open and reproducible research practices in alignment with institutional goals. The office, situated in the university library, helps researchers make their publications, methods, software, and data open by delivering training, guidance, infrastructure, and tools integrated within the research life cycle.
In this presentation, Taylor will share about the origins of the office, discussing efforts to secure buy-in from senior campus leaders and build ongoing strategic collaborations with other campus units through the Open Research Service Partnership. He will also present on several key initiatives to support open research, including the Open Research Fellowship program and the Open Research Tracker (for aggregating content and supporting responsible metrics).
This webinar will be relevant to anyone interested in open science. We expect this to be of particular interest to scholarly communication librarians and library leaders, as well as professionals working in institutional research, research administration, academic affairs, and campus communications.
All affiliates of OCLC Research Library Partnership organizations are invited to participate.
