In recent years empirical disciplines have been experiencing ongoing methodological reorientation toward more transparency and open research practices. As a consequence, a series of methods were proposed to increase scientific integrity. Open science practices include preregistration, replication research, publishing open access, and sharing data, research material and code.
The Open Science Community Amsterdam is part of the larger open science community network in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. Open science communities are an initiative to create a platform for researchers and students from all faculties and academic levels to subscribe to the open science philosophy, talk and learn about open science practices, and get concrete advice and help on how to apply them in their research projects.
The Open Science Community will be organizing events such as Open Science Cafes which aim to share experiences and knowledge, and to connect with other Open Science Communities. In addition, Alexandra Sarafoglou and Suzanne Hoogeveen offer advise on open science related questions for students and researchers from all faculties.
