Open Science Policy

Why an Open Science Policy?

The policy describes the main Open Science principles and requirements that members of the UZH community are obliged to comply with. It serves as a framework and provides guidance on how to integrate Open Science practices into UZH teaching and research. The policy clarifies what is expected of researchers and leaves scope for the different research areas and faculties to determine their own focus and priorities.

Development of the policy by the end of 2020

The policy is currently being developed. The first version of the policy will be drafted by the Open Science Committee. As a second step, the UZH community will have the opportunity to comment on the policy. Once the final version has been edited, the policy and implementation plan will be submitted to the Executive Board of the University for approval.
