Exploratory Lunches: Open Social Science

Hand holding lightbulb against sunset sky

Join the Co-Directors of Research (School of Social and Political Science), Mathias Thaler and Toby Kelly, on 9 February 2022 at 12pm for the next event in the Exploratory Lunches series. This session will explore the opportunities and challenges raised by open research for quantitative and qualitative research.

The term ‘open research’ has become increasingly common in academic discourse as more researchers embrace its core principles and more funders establish policies promoting it. However, it is one thing to agree that research should be transparent, collaborative and accessible, and quite another to achieve this in practice.

The purpose of this session is to explore the opportunities and challenges raised by open research for quantitative and qualitative researchers at the School of Social and Political Science. Researchers from three subject areas will join the Deputy Director of Research (Data and Open Research) to share experiences, discuss their work on open research, and reflect on new expectations regarding data sharing and academic publishing.

Panelists:
• Dr Rosalind Attenborough (Science, Technology and Innovation Studies)
• Dr Roxanne Connelly (Sociology, Research Training Centre)
• Dr Jean-Benoît Falisse (Centre of African Studies)
• Dr Lisa McCormick (Sociology)
