Office of Research honors devoted program supporters
Each year, the Office of the Vice President for Research is proud to offer a variety of internal programs for researchers across the UofSC system, at every level. To ensure these programs are effective and successful, we count on the support of faculty partners who serve on review committees and mentor student researchers. We are so fortunate to have many faculty members who generously share their expertise to support these programs each year. To celebrate the outstanding faculty members who pitch in year after year, we are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2022 Distinguished Research Service Awards and Distinguished Undergraduate Research Mentor Awards.

Nature article highlights how open science could compound the inequities it aims to resolve
Open science is a vague mix of ideals. Overall, advocates aim to increase transparency, accountability, equity and collaboration in knowledge production by increasing access to research results, articles, methods and tools. This means that data and protocols should be freely shared in high-quality repositories and research articles should be available without subscriptions or reading fees. Failing to address structural inequalities directly means that open science could increase the advantages of those who are already privileged, especially given that they have the most influence over how open science is implemented.
