Other Network Resources

GO-GN member Chrissi Nerantzi has compiled a list of very useful resources to guide you through your PhD journey. Check them out here.

Two useful bibliographical resources for researchers in open education are the OER Knowledge Cloud (an archive of research articles, books and reports) and the research bibliography on OER in the Global South provided by the ROER4D project.

The Open Education Research Hub team wrote the Open Research course at P2PU’s School of Open.  The facilitated version of the course is now archived but researchers may still be interested in reviewing the course activities to gain better insights into the role of openness in research. The course also exists in ebook form, available at 

The LSE Impact of Social Sciences blog shared this selection of essential guides for researchers and young academics.

If you’re considering open release of research data you might be interested in the OER Research Hub Ethics Manual and the Information Commissioner’s report on best practice for managing risk through anonymisation.
