Open Research principles
Our open research principles are drawn from the University of Manchester’s Position Statement on Open Research:
These principals, including open sharing of data, methods and results, help support transparency and rigour in research.
Collaboration in open research broadly describes the participation of non-traditional researchers in scientific research.
The FAIR principles for research data management illustrate best practice for sharing open data.
Software created in the research process should be as open as possible to enable the research to be replicated.
Research transparency is a key concept, promoting values of openness and transparency in the scientific process.
The University supports all open and equitable models of scholarly publishing as part of our broader open research commitmen
The open research movement emerged in response to concerns about the validity of published scientific results.
