Open Scholarship, Open Science

Research in psychology is changing. Historically, scientists did their work privately, in their own labs. Now, a generation of young researchers are experimenting with a new model. These researchers are implementing open science - a model of transparency and materials sharing (e.g., data, code, survey materials) that take full advantage of the internet as a means of sharing science. Come hear how Dr. Carpenter and his team of SPU students are experimenting with these new models and hear the direction the field is going, away from the traditional "paper" model of study and more toward peer-reviewed "study websites".
