Open Research in the Social Sciences

This online workshop has been organised by the Space, Place, Environment and Liveability (SPEL) pathway and is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded PhD and MA Social Research students within the WRDTP’s seven partner universities. PGRs from all seven interdisciplinary Pathways are welcome to attend.

Students attending the session will build their knowledge and understanding of the increasingly important issue of open research.  Students will develop a deeper appreciation of what open research entails, how it can be achieved, and the benefits and challenges involved in producing research that is ‘open’.
