General Guidelines on Responsible Open Science

ROSiE guidelines is the Open Science (OS) complement to the ECoC. It is an aspirational document that aims to provide guidance on how to conduct Open Science (OS) responsibly in everyday research practice, following established ethical and integrity principles and values. The articles of these guidelines primarily apply to research but may also be suitable to processes leading to innovation.
