FORRT (Framework for Open and Reproducible Research Training) provides guidelines and materials for the transition towards Open Education. Teachers can go through seven steps to integrate open and reproducible science tenets into the teaching workflow. FORRT also created a curated summary of articles discussing open and reproducible research as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion. Moreover, FORRT's syllabus can be used as a starting point to look for literature that can be used in class. The syllabus is subdivided into seven clusters, e.g., reproducibility or preregistration. Each cluster has a rich set of research articles organized in several sub-categories addressing, e.g., history, approaches, and examples.


The FOSTER portal is an e-learning platform that provides materials for a large number of Open Science practices. FOSTER's definition of Open Science is described in a fine-grained taxonomy. Readers can get information in the form of videos or guidelines. They can also take short courses, for example, on open peer review, data management plans, and reproducibility.

Software carpentry

Software Carpentry teaches researchers computing skills. Volunteers contribute with lesson materials addressing, for example, version control with GIT, Plotting and Programming in Python, and R for Reproducible Scientific Analysis. More lessons are available on the website.


OpenAIRE provides a set of instructions in the context of Open Science, e.g., for licensing research datapublishing FAIR data, and choosing data formats for preservation.
