OSC Services

The OSC offers a range of resources including Guides, Workshops, Office Hours, and 1:1 Consultations with subject-matter experts across 5 major areas. These include:

Working with Data

If you are seeking help with visualizing data, incorporating geospatial components into your research, managing metadata, optimizing research impact, or delving into text mining and analysis, we are here to help.


Sharing & Publishing Your Work

If you are eager to share your work with a broader audience, our Online Publishing Platforms offer workshops and tools to support your open sharing goals. For those venturing into scholarly publishing, we are here to help you navigate the maze of copyrights and author rights to help you make informed decisions about including third-party materials.

If you are working on your thesis or dissertation, our experts can assist with the intricacies of publishing, copyright considerations, and licensing within UW’s Electronic Thesis and Dissertation program.


Creating Open Course Materials

Open Educational Resources (OER) are course materials that are free for students and that come with permissions allowing for remixing, revising and adapting. Open Pedagogy is the practice of engaging with students as creators of information rather than simply consumers of it.


Measuring the Impact of Your Research

We are here to discuss tools and strategies for tracking, documenting, and expanding your research impact.


Digital Storytelling

Resources, tools, and techniques to help you  communicate and translate your work to a wider audience on digital technologies and media.
