About this Episode

We’re joined by Brian Nosek (Centre for Open Science and University of Virginia) to chat about building technology to make open science easier to implement, and shifting the norms of science to make it more open. We also discuss his recent social sciences replication project in which researchers accurately predicted which studies would replicate.

Here’s what we cover:

  • What is the Centre for Open Science?
  • How did Brian go from Psychology professor to the director of tech organisation?
  • How can researchers use the Open Science Framework (OSF)?
  • How does OSF remove friction for conducting open science?
  • Registered reports (now available at 131 journals!)
  • What factors converged to cause the emerging acceptance of open science?
  • The social sciences replication project
  • Can researchers anticipate which findings can replicate?
  • What happened when Brian and his team tried to submit their replication attempts of Science papers to Science?
  • The experience of reviewing registered reports
