The "Open Science" MOOC: updated training on scientific integrity

The 2023 version offers you new content to tackle scientific integrity issues and bridge the gap with open science.



Registration is now open, and the course can be taken at your own pace throughout the year.

This update takes place in the context of the August 26, 2022 decree making it compulsory to receive training in scientific integrity as part of one's doctorate.

In addition to free access to publications, this MOOC will enable you to learn more about the principles, methods and challenges of open science, an international movement in which Sorbonne University is particularly involved. This new version focuses on its relationship with scientific integrity issues.


Presentation of the MOOC

Led by a joint team from the libraries of Sorbonne University and the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle (MNHN), this free MOOC is aimed primarily at doctoral students, particularly those in the Sorbonne University Alliance. However, it is open to all. It is part of the commitment made by Sorbonne University in the Charter for Open Access to Publications to train all its doctoral students in open science.

All MOOC content is licensed under a CC-BY license, making it freely reusable, particularly by other higher education and research establishments.

Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.


Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).

Our campuses offer different and unique experiences to our students, visitors and staff. Resources and support services are also available to ensure an equal chance at success to all.

Campus Life

In addition to the cultural activities and events organised throughout the year by our clubs and societies, the Parismus society organises numerous events, evenings and cultural visits that will help you discover France and its parisian life.
