  • Replicability crisis and open science: emerging issues and practices in yesterday's, today's and tomorrow's research

Abstract

Open Science will likely change the way we work in the next future and perhaps one day we will thank the recent replicability crisis. In the talk, I will discuss the origins of the crisis, those endogenous (HARKing, p-hacking and the use of questionable research practices, lack of proper theories) and those exogenous (i.e., publication bias and "publish or perish"). Successively, I’ll list many of the practices that are now endorsed by the Open Science movement and community to respond to endogenous and exogenous problems and to improve the current research standards. The list includes a discussion about open access publications, open data and data sharing and a discussion about the use of replication studies as a tool to assess the temperature and the harmonic growth of the field. I will briefly sketch multi-laboratory research and the new statistical standards. I’ll carry on with a discussion about preregistration, registered reports and peer review and conclude by showing the response (so far) of the scientific community.
