Subjects covered

The emerging 'methodological crisis' in science has led to calls for the adoption of open science practices. However, such proposals are not new, as the benefits of open science have been discussed for over half a century. 

One factor that has hobbled the uptake of open science has been the availability of tools and technology to easily facilitate these practices. The Open Science Framework (OSF), which is a free web application, has been established to support researchers who would like to adopt open science practices. 

This workshop will provide a hands-on demonstration of how OSF can be used during all parts of the research workflow, including project planning, preregistering hypotheses, running your study, and reporting your results and materials. We will also demonstrate how OSF can be used to organise your research, collaborate within research groups, document your research process, version control your documents, and for sharing preprints. 

Finally, we will briefly discuss the overall benefits of open science, address common concerns, and outline how its adoption can help your scientific career.

While this workshop will be suitable from researchers across domains, the example exercises will primarily use research from the biobehavioral sciences.
