Western Washington University’s Center for Cross-Cultural Research will host Moin Syed, associate professor of Psychology at the University of Minnesota, for ‘The Open Science Movement is for All of Us’ from 4-5 p.m. on Monday, April 15 in Academic West 204.
This presentation is free and open to the public.
The open science movement has been gaining steam in numerous scientific disciplines such as ecology, cancer biology, and economics, as well as sub-disciplines of psychology. These issues, however, are still not widely understood nor seen as applicable to all types of research.
This presentation will include an overview of core issues in the open science movement and how they apply to all types of psychological research (any sub-discipline, any method). Emphasis will be placed on how incorporating open science principles can improve both theoretical and empirical work in psychology.
Syed will also host a free workshop for WWU students, “Developing Preregistration Plans for Cultural Psychology,” from 1-3 p.m. on Tuesday, April 16, in Academic West 433.
