Title

How openness can improve science: Tales from the front-line

Abstract

In this talk, I will ll give a brief overview of open science in Australasia, and then talk about some specifics. Pre-registration is a declaration of the researchers’ plans prior to the start of a study. It includes stating a priori hypotheses, rules about how many and who the participants are, the procedures to be used, and how the data will be analysed. I will talk about some options for completing a pre-registration of any study, from an undergraduate research thesis to a grant-funded project. I will also review some of the ways that we have encouraged pre-registration in the UQ School of Psychology, which includes promoting open science practices to students and staff.
