Meta-Science - An Introduction


This talk offers an introduction to meta-scientific questions. Meta-science (or also called meta-research) has science itself as its object of investigation and tries to derive evidence-based suggestions for its improvement. With the increased focus on replicability and robustness of psychological findings, a meta-scientific bird's eye view is becoming more important. In this talk, we will provide an overview of meta-scientific issues from different disciplines and show why meta-science is more than just conducting meta-analyses. We will also look at the intersection between open science practices and meta-science and how the two topics can benefit from each other. The event will be held as a lecture with interactive elements, so there will be opportunities to bring in your own questions and experiences from your studies or research.
