On December 6, NASA released its new Open Science 101 curriculum (OS101), aimed at empowering researchers, early career scientists, and underrepresented communities with the knowledge and tools necessary to embrace open science practices. The curriculum, developed by NASA’s Transform to Open Science (TOPS) initiative, is designed to meet researchers at every stage of their open science journey by catering to those new to open science, established researchers, and aspiring students looking to embark on scientific careers.
Why You Should Take OS101:
- Apply for Funding: SMD proposals now require an Open Science and Data Management OS101 will equip you with the skills needed to create this plan and thrive in an open and collaborative research environment.
- Promote Inclusivity: OS101 equips you to better understand how open science will promote inclusivity, and plan for a more open research environment.
- Increase Impact: OS101 teaches principles to efficiently and effectively share your research to increase its impact, enhance discoverability, master data management, and foster connections within the open science community.
All five modules of the course are accessible through a self-paced massive open online course (MOOC) platform, where participants can learn at their own pace. In addition to the MOOC, the modules will also be covered in virtual and in-person instructor-led training sessions. As participants complete the curriculum, they will have the opportunity to earn a NASA Open Science digital badge showcasing their proficiency and dedication to open science practices.
