Eight components for ‘open social science’ – An agenda for cultural change | British Politics and Policy at LSE

“The open science movement has been gathering force in STEM disciplines for many years, and some of its procedural elements have been adopted also by quantitative social scientists. However, little work has yet been done on exploring how more ambitious open science principles might be deployed across both the qualitative and quantitative social science disciplines. Patrick Dunleavy sets out some initial ideas to foster a cultural shift towards open social science, explored in a current CIVICA project.”

Open Science, the Social Sciences and the CIVICA Alliance – CIVICA

27 October, 12.00-1.30pm CET

What does Open Science mean in the context of social sciences? What are the drivers and barriers and what does best practice look like? How can the CIVICA alliance promote, support and collaborate on Open Science? These are the questions that will be addressed at this roundtable discussion. Researchers at all levels at CIVICA institutions are invited to join the conversation. Panel discussions will feature contributions from CIVICA Research project coordinators and work package leaders, social science researchers and professional services. The event will be concluded with a summary of current work and future plans for Open Science on the Horizon 2020 funded CIVICA Research project. The event is open to all researchers, students, PhDs and postdocs from the CIVICA alliance
