Why an Open Science Policy?
The policy describes the main Open Science guidelines for the UZH community. 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
The policy is currently being developed. The first version of the policy was drafted by the Open Science Committee. As a second step, the UZH community has had 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.
