Transparent science: A more credible, reproducible, and publishable way to do science

Edit this page


This is an exciting time to be a psychological scientist. There is a major new movement that seeks to promote the credibility and replicability of psychological research by enhancing its transparency, with scholarly societies promoting the principles ( and groups formed specifically to advance that mission (see and for two examples). While relatively low rates of replicability among scientific findings (Begley & Ellis, 2012; OSC, 2015; Chang & Li 2015) inspired the existence of these groups, in this chapter we describe how striving to maximize transparency in your research can benefit both science and your career.
