Advocating for the integration of open and reproducible science into higher education

The Framework for Open and Reproducible Research Training (FORRT) brings together educators and scholars working to improve teaching and mentoring practices in higher education.

For more information about our goals and values, read our Mission Statement and Code of Conduct.

This project was initiated at the 2018 meeting of the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science in the “Teaching replicable and reproducible science” hackathon led by Kristen Lane and Heather Urry. The initial framework was developed in a subsequent working group consisting of: Flávio Azevedo, Sam Parsons, Carl Michael Galang, Kristin Lane, Lisa DeBruine, Benjamin Le, Donald Tellinghuisen, and Madeline Harms (we apologise if we have missed anybody - please let us know). If you are interested in learning about how FORRT developed and matured, our first website is still online. Fun fact, FORRT was ‘born’ at Grand Rapids, Michigan, on Sunday, June 24th, 2018, at approximately 4pm local time.
