Open Science Coffee: Mentoring for Open and Robust Science
- Thursday 14 October 2021
- An open OSCoffee for anyone to join!
Mentoring for Open and Robust Science
Abstract: One of our primary roles as mentors is to train the next generation of scientists on how to be both rigorous and ethical in their science. Across the last decade, it became clear that the research in psychology was often guided by the desire to publish research with less care about the robustness of the research. This has lead to the replication crisis or more positively the replication revolution that has exposed poor incentive structure for robust research and many statistical issues in how the science is approached. Given that many current mentors were trained in the "publish or perish" mentality, how can we change our mentoring style and research groups so that replicable, robust, and rigorous science is the focus. I will detail some of the things I have done in order to promote open science in my own practices and to mentor it with my own students and research group.
