Inspire, equip, and empower the community to make science more robust, transparent, and accessible.

Hi! This popup is there to inform you know that our website is currently under (re)construction mode. As we do things in the open, you can see the progress all along. Feel free to contact us at if you would like to help us. If you are not at UdeM, you could start your branch at your own university so we can make a Canadian-wide Open Science Network! We'll launch more details about that soon.

Our initiatives

Communication platform

Discuss, share, and ask your questions to other open science enthusiasts on our chat.

Workshops and Conferences

We organize events, including talks and workshops, on different aspects of open science.

Directory of

We maintain a directory of open resources and methods by and for the community to facilitate their use.

Promoting local initiatives

As a community, we encourage and support local (and international) initiatives and partnerships.

Journal club on open science and beyond

ReproducibiliTea is our local branch of the famous journal club to discuss diverse issues, papers and ideas about improving science, reproducibility, etc.

Our initiative was selected to be part of an international program!
The Open Life Science program helps early stage researchers and potential academic leaders in becoming Open Science ambassadors. Our project was one of the 20 supported projects.

Open and reproducible research practices are fundamentally changing the way in which researchers work. The Open Science UMontreal initiative is hugely exciting as it provides the next generation of researchers with the knowledge and tools to achieve the highest standards of rigour, reproducibility, and transparency in the research they conduct.
