Responsible, open and interdisciplinary science practices

Responsible Research and Open Science ensure reliability with respect to a high quality of research. These practices include preregistration of research designs, improved statistical inferences, open review practices, open access to research data and publications, and replication of findings across multiple labs. They will aid in establishing a cumulative and more reliable science, thus increasing public trust in scientific evidence. Adherence to the highest ethical standards will help to make research contents more responsive to the needs of society. 

Our research in this area focuses on how to stimulate responsible and cumulative science practices, and on understanding and overcoming barriers to open and interdisciplinary exchange and collaboration.
