Becoming an Open Science Institution

<< Back to Open Science

In line with our Open Science guiding principles, the Douglas Open Science program aims to support external organizations or large-scale programs looking to broadly adopt Open Science practices, especially in the context of mental health research. The sections below collect presentations, publications and resources produced by our Open Science program, sharing lessons learned and reusable tools. We additionally provide external resources relevant to our Open Science journey.

Recorded presentations
Reusable resources
  • Open Science program’s OSF project, DOI: 10.17605/OSF.IO/F7XPY – reusable versions of documents and tools created to launch and sustain our Open Science program.
  • Open Science program’s webpages – several useful examples for organizations looking to develop e.g., Open Access policies or Open Science awards.
  • Douglas Neuroinformatics Platform’s GitHub page – software and documentation for the Douglas Neuroinformatics platform.
External resources
Below we list external resources that have been of great help to our Open Science program, including communities of practice, available funding programs, and existing Open Science services that provided support and partnerships. Although some resources may only be relevant for organizations in Quebec or Canada, they are good starting points to identify equivalent resources in your university or geographical location.
