In this increasingly complex and interconnected global scientific ecosystem, Open Science aims to make knowledge transparent and accessible using digital technologies, collaborative networks, and tools. Researchers need to apply the principles of openness to all the stages of their research cycle as a step forward towards Open Science to increase openness, integrity, collaboration, and reproducibility in scholarly research. This webinar will give a detailed overview of the concept of Open Science and its fundamental aspects like Open Access, Open Data etc. It will also highlight how researchers can contribute to Open Science by sharing all their research outputs, resources, methods, or tools openly.
After this webinar, you will have a better understanding of the following:
Overview and importance of Open Science
Awareness regarding Open Access publishing
The significance of Open Data sharing
Understanding the importance of self-archiving in Open Repositories
Insights into Open Peer Review and Open Licensing
Summary of Open Source and Open Education Resources

Citations – often termed as intellectual transactions, acknowledgment of intellectual debts, and conceptual association—are a link between the author’s current study and already published work. It not only provides credibility to the author’s work but also helps funders evaluate the impact of the research study. Citation indexes are maintained for information retrieval of both cited and citing work, facilitating the literature search process. It also helps authors in identifying the number of citations that their papers have received. Citation data is considered as a legitimate measure to rank authors, journals, and publishers. Through this webinar, we aim at providing information about citation indexing and how authors and publishers can get indexed in established citation databases.
After this session, attendees will learn:
Why and what authors need to cite?
Citation indexing and its significance
Selection criteria of international citation databases like WoS, Scopus, and Crossref
How can journals and publishers index in citation databases?

Do the abstract and introduction mean the same? How is the content for both the sections different? This is a dilemma faced by several young researchers while drafting their first manuscript. An abstract is similar to a summary except that it is more concise and direct. The introduction section of your paper is more detailed.
