Did you know that in some fields of science, up to 60% of published studies are not replicated, especially those published in top journals? Isn’t it awful that a considerable chunk of the scientific knowledge we believe in, teach students, and share with the world is rubbish?
Open science is about conducting research in a more transparent, accessible, and replicable way. It encompasses practices and principles that ensure that science is not intellectual charlatanism but a reliable method for understanding and improving the world.
But what exactly is open science, and how do you apply these principles in your research and papers? That’s what you will learn in this masterclass.
