10 May: Getting started with open science

How does one start with incorporating open science practices? This session’s paper contains a very accessible guide for graduate students (and their advisors) on some of the different ways to engage with the reproducibility movement. These tips will also be very useful for other researchers ;). They are given difficulty ratings (easy, medium or difficult) and potential worries are addressed. We will then discuss what tips we can incorporate into our own research.

14 June: Preregistrations

What are preregistrations and why are they useful? This session’s article shows how preregistration can combat questionable research practices (QPRs) and analytical flexibility and provides recommendations on how preregistrations can be evaluated and interpreted. We will then discuss when preregistrations are useful and how to incorporate them into our own research.
