Keynote: Erin McKiernan, How open science helps researchers succeed

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Open access, open data, and other open scholarship practices are growing in popularity and necessity. However, widespread adoption of these practices has not yet been achieved. One reason is that researchers are uncertain about how sharing their work will affect their careers. I'll review the evidence demonstrating that open research is associated with increases in citations, media attention, potential collaborators, job opportunities and funding opportunities. I'll also talk about my personal experiences as a researcher practicing open science.
