There is a vast body of helpful tools that can be used in order to foster Open Science practices. For reasons of clarity, this toolbox aims at providing only a selection of links to these resources and tools. Our goal is to give a short overview on possibilities of how to enhance your Open Science practices without consuming too much of your time. You can either navigate on the online toolbox or download the full toolbox as pdf. The content of this page was create by Lutz Heil. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or contributions (contact: Malika Ihle).

PhD/Dissertation agreement

A PhD/Dissertation agreement is a good oppurtunity to assure the implementation of Open Science practices in the research of PhD candidates. The Department Psychology of the LMU Munich provides a template for this kind of agreement that could be used as an example for similiar documents in all disciplines.
