  <dc:description>From a standard Research Lifecycle, to a fully Open Research Lifecycle. The Single-Figure Publication showcases Open Science best practices across the entire Research Lifecycle, that if implemented correctly, can make research more transparent, reproducible and re-usable by both academic and non-academic users.

The Open Research Lifecycle was developed and tested during FP7 FOSTER (Grant Agreement 612 425) training calendar 2014-2016 (refer to doi: 10.5281/zenodo.48748 for full training calendar details) covering target audience across the entire academic ecosystem (graduates, senior researchers, project managers, funding agency staff cf doi: 10.5281/zenodo.30564).

“Research Cycle” is an adaptation of Tenopir et al., (2011) DOI:10.1371/journal.pone.0021101

This is a Single Figure Publication (doi: 10.5281/zenodo.49960) presenting opportunities at each step of the research process to provide additional transparency and reproducibility through Open Science best practices.

Grant Funding: FP7 FOSTER, Grant Agreement 612 425 (

Contributions: IG conceived the first draft of concept and context. All authors contributed to improving the final design and testing its relevance through FOSTER Training Calendar 2014-2016.

Competing interests: No known competing interests.

  <dc:description>Author contributions: Ivo Grigorov drafted an early draft specifically for the FOSTER WorkPackage 4 Training Calendar ( All FOSTER Partners contributed in improving the final draft based on training all target groups in the Research Ecosystem (doi: 10.5281/zenodo.30564).
