LMU & MPG Open Science Summer School 2024

LMU & MPG Open Science Summer School 2024 680 680 Open and Universal Science (OPUS) Project

The LMU & MPG Open Science Summer School 2024, organized by the LMU Open Science Center (OSC) and the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL), is set to provide an intensive and transformative experience for early career researchers. This 5-day event is designed to equip participants with the essential knowledge and skills to enhance the transparency, reproducibility, and credibility of their research.

What You Will Learn

By participating in the Open Science Summer School, researchers will gain insights into several critical areas:

  1. Preregistration and Data Simulation: Participants will learn to clarify their research design and set up statistical plans before data collection. This approach helps prevent biases in analyses and ensures a more robust research methodology.
  2. Computational Reproducibility: The Summer School will teach researchers how to create reproducible workflows using programming and version-controlled scripts. This skill is vital for increasing efficiency and identifying mistakes in data wrangling or analyses.
  3. Data Management and Sharing: Researchers will be trained to prepare, manage, and share their data and code effectively. This includes applying the Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable (FAIR) principles and using appropriate repositories and licenses.

By adopting these practices, participants will increase the impact of their research and ensure their contributions, as well as those of others, are properly acknowledged.

Programme Details

The complete programme for the Summer School is available online, offering a comprehensive overview of the lectures and workshops. These sessions are designed to provide both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, making the event suitable for a wide range of research disciplines.

Application and Registration

To attend the full Summer School, including both public lectures and specialized workshops for selected applicants, researchers must apply by 15 July 2024, 12:00 noon CEST. The application process ensures that participants are committed and prepared to fully engage with the intensive curriculum.

Additionally, anyone interested can register at any time before the end of the Summer School to attend one or more public lectures online. This flexible option allows a broader audience to benefit from the valuable content provided by the event.
