In this course, we will take a look at the scholarly communication landscape for biomedical and STEM researchers. The last decade has seen an unprecedented boom in interdisciplinary and collaborative research and a significant effort to create robust platforms that streamline the research and publication process. We will highlight key areas where new open publishing platforms streamline the research workflow. Participants will get hands-on experience with research and data-publishing platforms that help scholars create collaborative protocols, manage research data and code, and learn preprints best-practices. We will start with an overview of planning an open research workflow from the perspective of biomedical and STEM researchers and then dive into key tools and publishing platforms.
