Pre-Specification and Reproducibility – Applications for Academic and Private Sector Research Catalyst Training Project
Open science best practices are not universally adopted in the social sciences and are often not included in graduate-level curricula, despite the potential for pre-specification and reproducibility practices to enhance credibility in both academic and private-sector research. This project seeks to introduce graduate students to the many avenues through which open science concepts can improve transparency and reproducibility in both academic and professional settings. Through a series of workshops, I will facilitate discussion with my peers about how to apply open science principles to bolster credibility in current and future research. Specifically, I will discuss the benefits of pre-specifying both academic and professional analyses and introduce tools to enhance research reproducibility.
