Open Your Workflow

Your research workflow can be defined by the tools you use to manage the research information you generate throughout the research lifecycle, whether it be protocols, field notes, transcripts, data, code, manuscripts, slides, posters, or publications. 

One of the ways you can support open, transparent, citable, findable, and sharable research information and outputs is to use tools that will make this process easier.
