1.9 Wrap up

This has been a very short introduction to the world of Open Science; the crisis that launched a movement to address underlying issues in reproducibility, transparency, access, and equity and diversity in scientific research.

In subsequent chapters and terms, we'll explore some of the challenges researchers face in implementing practices related to Open Science as well as some of the successes that have emerged from within UBC as our faculty and students embrace methods for well done research rooted in transparent, reproducible methods that integrate alternative ways of viewing our environments, and evaluate research goals and outcomes base on diverse perspectives that result from different experiences.
