Who are we?

The Open Scholarship Community Rochester (OSC Rochester) comprises academics and support staff working at University of Rochester (UR) and the Rochester region. Our common goal is to discuss, learn, promote, and adopt open and transparent scholarship practices at every stage of the research cycle, from the initial idea to the final product. For further details, please check out our Guiding Principles.

OSC Rochester is part of the International Network of Open Science & Scholarship Communities
