Event Details

Societal pressure to publish new or novel research findings has contributed to public concerns and criticisms about the credibility of scientific studies. David Mellor, Project Manager at the Center for Open Science, will help educate researchers about reproducibility and transparency, ultimately producing research that is more effective at solving problems.

The Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Institute invites researchers across campus to learn more about issues in research design, development, and publication, and the tools available through the Center for Open Science. Please join this exciting day of education for all members of the scientific community.

The Center for Open Science advocates for policies that make science more transparent, such as sharing data and code, and preregistering studies. These policies, laid out in the Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) Guidelines, provide a resource to journals, publishers, and funders to make science more reproducible. All of the actions covered under TOP are enabled by the Open Science Framework (OSF), a free and open source tool for the scientific community. This free workshop is focused for researchers serving editor and associate editor roles, and registration is required.
