Open Science Goes to the Antarctic–Well, Nearly

Have you ever met a Professor of Seaweed? No, nor had I, but now I have: Catriona Hurd. More about her in a moment. I’m just back from two highly enjoyable days visiting IMAS, the Institute of Marine and Antarctic

Not replicable, but citable

What happens to the reputation of a paper when the results reported cannot be replicated? Here’s a graph of citations/year from two studies–an original and a replication study that found little to no effect.  It’s just one example, but it

It’s not all bad news

Here’s a cool pre-print examining the quality of evidence in studies of the genetics of short-term memory in fruit flies (Tumkaya, Ott, & Claridge-Chang, 2018).  The paper conducts a meta-analysis of different genes that have been linked to altered olfactory

Pre-registration challenge met!

I (Bob) have met the pre-registration challenge!  I pre-registered a set of replication studies (Calin-Jageman, 2018), and now that they are published, I’ve received confirmation from the Center for Open Science that I have met the challenge–a check for $1,000

Open Science Leaders: Dan and Steve Tell Their Stories

BTW, have you noticed that Bob has set up NewStatistics on Twitter–scroll down and see the right hand side bar. Do follow us and help spread the word. Thanks! Dan Simons may be best known as the co-author of the

See you in San Francisco?

I’ve written before about this year’s meeting of SIPS. My colleague Fiona Fidler reported that it was “probably the best conference I’ve ever been to”. Fiona also reports that the closing address at the meeting was a personal story told

Open Science and The New Statistics: Be Happy!

In May this year at the APS Convention in Boston, Bob and I ran a symposium with the title From NHST to The New Statistics: How do We Get There? It was great fun. There is a summary here. Next

Video – Getting started with the New Statistics and Open Science

This fall I (Bob) was invited to give a talk at Indiana University as part of a series on good science and statistical practice organized by the university’s Social Science Research Commons (SSRC).  The SSRC is like a core facility

ITNS at SfN17 in DC

As Bob mentioned in his post earlier today, he’s at SfN17, the enormous (30,000+ folks) Neuroscience meeting happening now in Washington DC. Here’s how the SfN site describes the meeting: “SfN’s 47th annual meeting, Neuroscience 2017, is the world’s largest
