Required prior and related subjects: Philosophy and Methodology of Science Teaching Practice
Summary of the subject: consider the methodology and practical aspects of conducting scientific research in an open way, as well as the theoretical and applied sides of implementing the Open Science paradigm within the Ukrainian and international scientific environment. We will explore the features of Open Access publishing of research outputs, use of open and FAIR data, application of open licenses, and open peer review. On top of that, we will learn about perspectives of modern ICT in research and discuss the principles of business development based on open innovation.
