What is the Open Research Network

The Australia and New Zealand Open Research Network is a collection of researchers and research-associated workers. In practice, ANZORN is a network of local networks distributed without Australia and New Zealand. It aims to facilitate the growth of Open practices by bringing together independently motivated and like-minded people, and providing a platform for the sharing of resources.

Not sure if you're an open researcher?
Check if there are networks close to you, come along to an event, and find out.
We currently have chapters in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, and New Zealand.
You can also join our mailing list and Slack.

ANZORN is inspired by the Open Science Community Utrecht.
