Workshop and Breakfast: Open Science for Journal Editors
8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
I Hotel, Humanities Room
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.
Workshop: Reproducibility for Early Career Researchers
1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Illini Union, Room 314B
The Center for Open Science builds and maintains the free and open source Open Science Framework (OSF) to make managing reproducible studies easier. The Center for Open Science advocates for and enables more open science by making data sharing and preregistration easy. Learn about reproducibility, connecting complex workflows, basics to using the OSF, and increasing the credibility of your research findings with preregistration. This free workshop is focused for Doctoral and Post-Doctoral students, and registration is required.
Keynote: Making Science Transparent by Default
4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Beckman Institute Auditorium
Biases that favor novel and significant findings, combined with unreported flexibility in data analysis that undermines hypothesis testing, leads to research that is not as reproducible as it should be. Improving science requires building a culture that rewards scientific ideals, transparency and rigor, over secrecy and novelty. The Center for Open Science works to make this vision a reality by enabling transparency with technology and rewarding transparency with incentives and policy.
