Pre-Specification and Reproducibility – Applications for Academic and Private Sector Research Catalyst Training Project

Ann Furbush

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.
