Open Science Principles

The potential of Open Science can only be fully realized if this approach becomes an integral part of research practice worldwide.

The Open Science principles are addressed to all university members who conduct or support research and/or teaching. The University of Cologne strongly recommends implementing the principles outlined here and making scientific outputs - for example, publications, research data, codes, or teaching and learning materials - publicly available as far as possible. In doing so, specific requirements and restrictive framework conditions of the various scientific disciplines are taken into account.
