The Coalition for Advancing Digital Research and Education (CADRE) will host the CADRE Spring Symposium Series beginning on Wednesday, Jan. 26. The symposia will explore current topics in digital research at Oklahoma State University through monthly speaker presentations followed by moderated question and answer. 

Real World Open Science – Researchers are being encouraged to make their data open and their research processes transparent. Funding agencies expect PIs to make data available in public repositories where possible in order to advance scientific processes more quickly and ensure that funded research is well used. There is evidence that advances in knowledge about COVID-19 treatment were accelerated by open sharing of data and fast access to preprints, but adoption of open science/research practices is not universally applauded. What concerns and issues stand in the way of rapid progress toward truly open science? This symposium will discuss advantages of open science and hold a panel discussion about the ways that open science creates both benefits and challenges for individual researchers.

Presenters from the OSU research community will describe the advantages of open data that are cited for both the scientific community and individual researchers, how open science practices improve reproducibility and why data should be as secure as necessary while being as open as possible. 

The January Symposium will be held virtually so registration is required. Register for the symposium here.
