Open Research Warwick
The University of Warwick is committed to the practice of 'Open Research' in all its forms. This work is led by the University’s Open Research Group which is an established sub-group of the University’s main Research Committee.
Here we highlight a number of areas of open practice including:
- Warwick Principles for the Evaluation of Research
- Research data management and open data
- Open access policies and publishing
- Open research tools and practices
Here you'll find links to some of the services offered by the Library to support your research practice and to help you think more about making your research more open.
You can also find information on the activities and events that are upcoming through the year and the outputs of any events you may have missed.
Finally, this is a year that will see a lot of activity nationally and internationally around open research - check our news feed for the latest updates.
Evaluation of Research
Find out more about the newly approved Warwick Principles for the Evaluation of Research, the implementation plan for their use and how this may affect your research practice.
Deposit your research
Explore open research outputs from Warwick researchers or find out more about how to deposit your own research.
Get people involved in Citizen Science
Citizen Science is an exciting range of research practices that get the public involved in your research. This is designed to both increase the public’s understanding of your research as well as to allow them to participate and increase your project’s capacity.
Manage your research data
Care and management of your data is an essential part of research good practice.
The Library provides support and guidance on the storage, curation, preservation and provision of continuing access to your analogue and digital research data.
Open Access (OA) is the practice of providing unrestricted access to scholarly outputs via the Internet. Explore your options for making your research open and find out how you can ensure your outputs are eligible for the REF.
Help with publisher negotiations
Negotiations with publishers are no longer just focused just on the access to content. The new negotiations will have a direct affect on where University of Warwick researchers can publish their research. Get involved to find out more!
