- Description: Event Improving open science and reproducibility is less a technical challenge and more of a social challenge. Current practice is sustained by a dysfunctional incentive structure that prioritizes publication over accuracy. Changing the research culture to prioritizing accuracy over having the work published will promote transparency and reproducibility, while not losing the engine of innovation and discovery that drives science into new domains. Guest speaker Brian Nosek, co-founder and executive director of the Center for Open Science, a non-profit organization in Charlottesville, Virginia, lead a discussion about improving reproducibility, replicability in science. Session topics include policy, incentive, and normative changes that funders and others are adopting to improve research credibility and accelerate progress.
