The Student Initiative for Open Science (SIOS) was created by a group of students with the aim of spreading the message and practices of Open Science (OS) within the wider student community. They have compiled an impressive list of multimedia resources to introduce students to the philosophy and practices of Open Science and they host regular events, including online talks and debates. They even provide a step-by-step guide for setting up your very own student initiative for open science. You can find more information and useful resources on their website (
