This is an open licensed collection of presentations and posters from the Edinburgh Open Research Conference 2022. The University’s Library Research Support Team and grassroots organisations Edinburgh ReproducibiliTea and Edinburgh Open Research Initiative (EORI) joined forces to launch the first Edinburgh Open Research Conference. Which was held in the John McIntyre Conference Centre and Online on the 27th May 2022.

Open research (a.k.a. “open science” or “open scholarship”) refers to a collection of practices and principles around transparency, reproducibility and integrity in research.

As an active member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU) and a signatory of DORA, Edinburgh is committed to making open research the new normal by supporting and encouraging the adoption of good open research practice throughout the University. This represents a significant change in the way research will be conducted, and how the next generation of researchers will be trained. That is why we launched this new conference.

Attendees heard about the work the University is doing to support moves towards Open Research, but more than that it was a chance to discuss the challenges and opportunities that Open Research will bring, and to network with colleagues from other disciplines and institutions who are facing those too. The conference was free to attend and open to those within the University of Edinburgh as well as external attendees, from all disciplines, backgrounds and roles.

The schedule consisted of talks, workshops and poster sessions, both with internal and external presenters. We were also excited to welcome our keynote speaker for this conference, Professor Stephen Curry from Imperial College London, who also is the Chair of DORA.

All of the outputs for the conference have been openly published through the Edinburgh Open Research journal, an open access journal hosted on Edinburgh Diamond. This means that each presentation and poster has a unique DOI that can be used when citing any of the outputs from this conference.
