Making Science Transparent By Default

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

All pre-conference workshops required separate registration. That registration process is now CLOSED and this workshop is full.  

In this workshop, participants will learn to create an open research project, disseminate findings through preprint communities, address bias in research planning, and create communities of practice to engage a wider audience through shared goals.

We will begin with an ideal end in mind: a fully open research report disseminated and improved through an open preprint platform. Backing up the assertions and discoveries from that preprint are fully open and FAIR data, analysis code, and research materials. Underlying the whole project is a persistent, preregistered analysis plan that helps to improve planning and address sources of bias in data collection and analysis. Finally, participants will plan a community-building campaign that takes advantage of our open source tools.

To prepare for the workshop, sign up for an account at https://osf.io. Materials will be provided here: https://osf.io/sfzxc/
