    • Community members have a profile on our Members page. Members show an interest in Open Scholarship principles (but you do not need to commit openly to adhering to all principles!).
    • OSCG Members are expected to adhere to our Code of Conduct.
    • We are a Community of Open enthusiasts in the West of Ireland. You don’t need to live in Galway but you should have a connection to this part of Ireland.
    • We welcome staff, students and HE employees like support staff and librarians.
    • Adhering to Open principles increases the robustness of your research and improves replicability and credibility of your research.
    • Your thesis or dissertation might be your “legacy” to science. Why not make the most of it and publish the underlying data or code?
    • Increasingly, employers will see and value the skills needed to research and publish openly.
    • The OSCG is fun and you will meet friendly and interesting people!

    Yes, we’d be more than happy to do so. You can email and get in touch. We can help you with technology, room booking and advertising.
