Open Science Series
Promoting open science practices: what can (should) graduate programs do?
Dr. Bronson Hui, Hector Research Institute of Education Sciences and Psychology, University Tübingen, Germany.
The training that prospective researchers receive in graduate school can have a long-lasting impact on their career and research practices. Collectively, the scientific community must therefore consider how to best educate upcoming generations of researchers to see Open Science practices as the standard rather than as the exception. In this talk, I describe graduate programs that not only advocate for Open Science, but also proactively equip students with knowledge and skill sets to embrace the future research environment. Programs should consider systematic integration of Open Science into the training of research methods, both within individual courses and across the program at large. I will conclude by pointing audience members to a short survey quiz for graduate students and program directors to self-assess their readiness to welcome an Open Science future.
