We are researchers and students from all over Graz (Austria) and interested in Open Science and Open Access. Those two topics are relevant and will shape science and research in the 21st century.
Open Science broadly addresses the topic of transparency in the scientific process. Many steps during the research process occur in a black box to outsiders, which bears the risk that reported findings are potentially exaggerated or even false. Open Science strives to minimize those risks by promoting more transparency during the research process using online tools (e.g., by uploading data and materials on science clouds).
Open Access aims for free accessibility of research. Currently, most publications are behind expensive paywalls and universities have to pay thousands of Euro to access these articles. However, if research becomes freely accessible, more people can benefit from these findings.
Open Science Form for Dissertations
If you are a PhD student, who works with empirical data (the subject does not matter) and you want to make your research output more transparent in your dissertation, you can add the "Transparency and Open Science Statement" form to your dissertation (we suggest putting it before the Table of Contents). In this statement, you can transparently report crucial Open Science practices (i.e., open data and code, open materials, and preregistration, for details on these practices see this page) and whether your research is openly accessible. Our member Hilmar Brohmer provides an example form for his own dissertation.
