Open Research: Open Methods

What are open methods?

Open methods are those which are made available to other researchers. For example a research team could register their research protocol with a dedicated repository or website.

This sharing of methods supports the replication and reproduction of research as colleagues can see the steps taken in conducting a project. It also contributes to the tools and methods available for research more generally.

Whilst the sharing of research methods is common in health research it is possible in any discipline.
