The Impact of Open and Reproducible Scholarship on Students’ Attitudes, Outcomes, and Engagement


Recently, the scientific community took steps to reflect a widespread awareness of, and call for, improved practices ushering in the “credibility revolution,” including higher standards of evidence, preregistration, direct replication, transparency, and openness. The accelerating adoption of open science practices has been perhaps the most significant change in how social scientists work in the last decade. However, while there are still issues standing in the way of widespread adoption by academics, the integration of these new and improved principles into researchers’ educational pipeline lags behind (to the detriment of students and the quality of higher education). In an effort to raise awareness of the educational benefits of open and reproducible scholarship to students, we review the extant literature on the topic, tease out why academics should integrate these principles in their teaching and mentoring, and provide recommendations.

Project’s goal

To review and synthesize the evidence that investigates whether embedding open and reproducible science into research training can confer benefits for students. This includes undergraduate and postgraduate students, in all areas (not limited to psychology), on an international level.

Our working title is ‘The impact of open and reproducible scholarship on students’ attitudes, outcomes, and engagement: A review and synthesis of the evidence.'

In the process of conducting the systematic(-ish) literature review, we will compose summaries of the literature for each article as an effort to creat an open educational resource to be displayed in this page, which will accompany our manuscript as (possibly) supplementary materials.
