Open Science in Psychology [Kyoto]
13/02/2018 @ 10:30 - 12:00
Dr John N. Towse (Lancaster University, U.K.)
Abstract: Calls for a more “open science” framework for psychology have been made on a number of occasions. Recent technical and methodological innovations have made progress much more feasible lately, and we can more clearly envisage the positive benefits of open science for psychology. I will discuss some key areas where open science has been making progress – in Journal access, in data transparency, and in study design and hypothesis prediction, using examples from an open science psychology community in Lancaster called PROSPR. In the first area, I will focus on the Journal of Numerical Cognition, and open-access, free-to-publish academic outlet. In the second, I will explore opportunities for data transparency and its benefits, as well as training resources. In the third area, I will overview the ideas behind Registered Reports.
