Project Goals

The four major goals of the ROSiE project was to:


  1. Identify novel ethical and legal issues, as well as new forms of misconduct and questionable practices brought about by open science.
  2. Analyse them in the context of existing ethical and legal frameworks.
  3. Pinpoint gaps and grey areas.
  4. Integrate ethics and research integrity in open science and citizen science as a structural component.

The ROSiE Knowledge Hub is a platform that aims to support all research disciplines in actively pursuing open approaches in science and research while complying with legal frameworks and ethical standards. It is designed to openly funnel the ROSiE’s results and outputs in a user-friendly way and provides guidance to practitioners of Open Science in a structured and automated manner.

Major deliverables:

Rosie’s General Guidelines on responsible Open Science – 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.

Discipline related guidelines on responsible Open Science – a document that provides the practical tools and guidance necessary to navigate the complexity of Open Science (OS). The document focuses on guidelines in the discipline of Health and Life Sciences, Humanities, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences.
