Open research is increasingly required by funders and journals, and supported by institutions and researchers themselves. However, building transparency into the research process requires consideration of ethical and governance issues related to the appropriate sharing of intermediate research outputs. For example, if appropriate permissions are not obtained at the start of the research process, it can be difficult or impossible to share these research outputs later. This workshop will cover how to build transparency into the research process, the challenges associated with choosing an appropriate repository for different outputs, and the need for integrated data infrastructure to support open research.
