(Nov 2021) The Open Research Toolkit was created by the Open Research Working Group, comprising representatives of the Australasian Research Management Society (ARMS) and the Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL). The Toolkit supports Australasian institutions to implement or further develop open research policy, strategy and practice.
The Toolkit contains information, resources and good practice examples related to all aspects of open research, including policy, governance, pathways and processes. It also includes resources for individual researchers interested in engaging in open research practices and training materials for support services fostering open research within their organisations.
In the context of this Toolkit, the term ‘open research’ includes but is not limited to open access publications, FAIR data, FAIR software and code. Many of the examples in the Toolkit focus on open access to research publications.
