Every month, the Open Science Magazine of the ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics offers practical tips for economists on all aspects of Open Science. Tailor-made for their discipline.

In the Open Science Magazine, economists share their experiences with secondary publications in Open Access, replications, pre-registrations, Open Data, science communication, Open Source and much more.

In addition, there are worksheets with hands-on advice, answers to legal questions around Open Science, in-depth information about ongoing developments in Open Science and interviews with inspiring transformation ideas in the ZBW podcast The Future is Open Science (in German).
