Research Transparency: Finding Effective Solutions – The Lunch @ DC with Brian Nosek

August 24, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Transparency and reproducibility are core principles of research and not (yet) part of daily practice. Failures of transparency and reproducibility retard progress on creating knowledge. The Center for Open Science offers incentives to encourage, tools to enable, and training to enact transparency and reproducibility in all areas of research. Adoption will increase the efficiency of finding solutions to pressing problems.

Brian Nosek is co-Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Open Science that operates the Open Science Framework. COS is enabling open and reproducible research practices worldwide. Brian is also a Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia. He received his Ph.D. from Yale University in 2002. He co-founded Project Implicit, a multi-university collaboration for research and education investigating implicit cognition–thoughts and feelings that occur outside of awareness or control. Brian investigates the gap between values and practices, such as when behavior is influenced by factors other than one’s intentions and goals. Research applications of this interest include implicit bias, decision-making, attitudes, ideology, morality, innovation, barriers to change, open science, and reproducibility. In 2015, he was named one of Nature’s 10 and to the Chronicle for Higher Education Influence list.
