Practices and Tools of Open Science

Notice: All lectures are held in German!

Open Science

The scientific research community, its funders, and the public are all calling for  science to be more accessible, that is, for Open Science!

Yet this important topic has not become established in the curricula of universities and graduate programs. In our virtual event program, "Practices and Tools of Open Science," we would like to theoretically explore this topic, present practical options for implementing open science, and share methodological insights in a series of brief workshops.

Event format and participation

The series will be conducted online via Zoom. The lectures are held in German! Everyone is welcome to participate free of charge. The events are held in German. Generally, events are held on Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m.; individual dates may vary.

We do require participants to complete a brief registration via a Google Form. A Zoom link will be sent to you the evening before each scheduled event. You can register by selecting an event in the table below. The registration link can be found under Formalia.

For some events, prior knowledge of R is an advantage. A basic introductory course is already available in the ZPID media library: Crashkurs R

Who we are

The event series Practices and Tools of Open Science is organized by ZPID (Leibniz Institute of Psychology) in cooperation with the Open Science AG of PsyFaKo (Psychology Faculty Conference).

ZPID is the supra-regional infrastructure institute for psychology and sees itself as a public open science institute for psychology. It supports the entire scientific work process from literature search and study planning to data collection and analysis, documentation, archiving and publication of results. 

The PsyFaKo represents the interests of psychology students in German-speaking countries. Its Open Science working group aims to promote the shift towards open and transparent science in psychology, to inform students about Open Science, and to promote the dissemination of these topics in academic teaching.

The organizing team for this series includes:

  • Tanja Burgard, acting head of the Research Syntheses research area at ZPID.
  • Stefanie Müller, head of the infrastructure area of study planning, data collection and data analysis at ZPID
  • Maximilian Frank, OOpen Science AG of the PsyFaKo
  • David Grüning, Open Science AG of the PsyFaKo
  • Nicole Bössel, Open Science AG of the PsyFaKo
  • Leonhard Volz, Open Science AG of the PsyFaKo
