Open Science Game: Open Up Your Research

You will follow the researcher Emma on her way to a PhD. You get to decide at each stage whether Emma should practice an open science approach or go the conventional route. How should Emma’s research process look like? What will await Emma at the end?


The Game has been developed by the Main Library, the Center for Reproducible Science and the Open Science Office in collaboration with the Multimedia & E-Learning-Services (MELS) at UZH.

The Game can be used freely (also in a commercial context)
