# Open Research for Academics
### *A free workshop & hackathon*
#### Saturday, 29th October 2016
#### Goldsmiths, University of London
Open access is one step in a bigger journey that researchers have been slow to take. Supported by the British Academy, Goldsmiths are organising a one-day workshop with a strong practical element that aims to inspire and educate researchers across all disciplines on how to benefit from opening up their research.
Open research is much more than open access. It is about making all aspects of the research process open to all possible interested parties. It involves innovative approaches to communicating results and sharing outputs. It is about accessibility, inclusivity, citizen science, public engagement, radical transparency, reproducibility, data sharing, social media and more.
The workshop is an opportunity to hear from champions of open research. We will teach you how to open your research and explain the benefits of doing so. It will be organised as a combination of keynotes, master-classes and a mini hackathon with prizes!
