Easing into Open Science
Dr Priya Silverstein’s talk on ‘Easing into Open Science’ provides PhD students and postdocs in Psychology with a roadmap for engaging in open science practices. The talk suggests eight open science practices that novices could begin adopting today. The topics covered include journal clubs, project workflow, preprints, reproducible code, data sharing, transparent writing, preregistration, and registered reports. The talk provides a difficulty rating of each practice (easy, medium, difficult), presents them in order of suggested adoption, and follows the format of what, why, how, and worries. The talk will also provide PGRs with ideas on how to approach conversations with their supervisors/collaborators and specific resources on how to engage with each open science practice. The talk emphasises that engaging in open science behaviours need not be an all or nothing approach, but rather that PhD students and postdocs can engage with any number of the practices outlined.
If you would like to attend the event, then please submit the form here by 12:00 noon, Tuesday 13th February.
