Student Initiative for 
Open Science 

November 2020 Newsletter

New from us:

An Introduction to Open Science for Students!
What is the Open Science movement? What has been done? Why do students need to learn about Open Science? And how do you start? If you've ever asked any of these questions, check out our latest blog post
We will be presenting at the 2021 Open Science Conference!
The Open Science Conference is an annual event where researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and students gather to discuss the latest and future advancements in open science. This year will particularly focus on how the global pandemic impacted the open science movement. For the 2021 Conference, we will be presenting a poster that explains our initiative, our mission, and the Step-by-Step guide for building your own student initiative for open science (coming soon!). For more on the conference - click here.
