Improving Integrity, Transparency, and Reproducibility Through Connection of the Scholarly Workflow Andrew Sallans Partnerships Lead Center for Open Science
A talk on the Open Science Framework 1.Free, open source platform 2.Designed to add efficiency to workflow 3.Connector to other tools and services
So, why is this important?
Challenges: Perceived norms Norms Communality Open Sharing Universalism Evaluate research on own merit Disinterestedness Motivated by knowledge and discovery Organized skepticism Consider all new evidence, even against one’s prior work Quality Counternorms Secrecy Closed Particularlism Evaluate research by reputation Self-interestedness Treat science as a competition Organized dogmatism Invest career promoting one’s own theories, findings Quantity
