Why have an Open Research Café?
During Data Conversations our researcher community demonstrated an interest in discussions that move beyond open data to broader discussions around open research paradigms and practices. The library explored possibilities with our Psychology department’s PROSPR (Promoting Open Science Practices) group about how we might provide a forum for those discussions. Enter the Open Research Café.
The Open Research Café is co-designed by PROSPR and the Library and will be a regular event built around the following principles:
- Open to researchers and support staff from all levels
- Facilitates discussions on different aspects of Open Research
