The Center for Advanced Studies at LMU provides a forum for scientific exchange and discussion that bridges the divide between the established disciplines. Its activities are designed to promote all forms of collaborative research and to stimulate interdisciplinary communication within the University. In addition, it facilitates the integration of visiting scholars and scientists into the academic life of the University.
Many disciplines in the social sciences have adopted policies and practices in response to the reproducibility debate. The most widely adopted reforms include: de-emphasizing statistical significance to discourage a dichotomous interpretation of the statistical evidence; preregistration of experiments and the use of pre-analysis plans to limit the degrees of freedom available to researchers; and launching a new type of publication called “registered reports”, which journals commit to publishing solely on the basis of the study's design and analysis plan, i.e. before seeing any findings. What have we learned, and how should we move forward? The Workshop will bring together researchers working on topics related to open and reproducible science to discuss these questions.
