Open research encompasses openness throughout the research cycle, through collaborative working and sharing. Open research practice relates to all disciplines and involves storing, sharing and reusing outputs with the wider community, so everyone can access insights and knowledge much sooner, helping advance the researchers’ work and support reproducibility.

Open Research Week is supported by the Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) awarded by Wellcome Trust to the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, University of Liverpool. Find out more about the Wellcome Trust’s position on Open Research here.
