The Open Economics Guide has been online for about two years and offers information on Open Science, especially Open Access and Open Data. The Open Economics Guide contains practical tips, methods and tools with which researchers in business studies and economics can practise Open Science independently and successfully and thus promote their academic careers. The new topic of Open Educational Resources (OER) has now been added to the guide.
The new Contents
- How to recognise Open Educational Resources
- How to use Open Educational Resources in practice
- How to carry out quality control of OER
- What a search strategy for OER can look like
- How to create OER themselves
- What are the selection criteria for OER tools
- What should be considered when publishing
Together with the new topic area on OER Link, the Open Economics Guide now comprises four main topics with Open Access, Open Data and Open Science. In addition, the platform offers a constantly growing catalogue of free Open Science tools as well as an event calendar and a regular newsletter.
You are welcome to use the contents of the Open Economics Guide for training or other purposes. For this purpose the contents are offered under an open licence as far as possible. Large parts of it are also of interest to researchers outside business studies or economics or can be well adapted for them.
Get started straight away and see which background information, tips and tools from the Open Economics Guide to OER are helpful for your purposes.
