"Open Science and Replicability in the Behavioural Social Sciences" Conference of MethodenKompetenzZentrum, Faculty of Behavioural and Social Science, Chemnitz University of Technology, 30 April 2021           

Welcome to the official website of the virtual Open Science conference “Open Science and Replicability in the Behavioural Social Sciences”, which will be hosted by the University of Technology, Chemnitz (Germany, 30 April 2021).

Open Science practices offer increasing access to open data and research literature. Further, research processes including all steps of statistical analysis are becoming more transparent. Open Science also promises to have an impact on fundamental procedures in peer review processes (incl. pre-registration and avoidance of publication bias) as well as transparency and replicability of research processes and results. In addition, Open Science increases the possibility for international collaboration even during the ongoing research process and enables a large number of researchers to join forces and work together on one research question. During this conference we will discuss consequences and possibilities of these aspects as well as their implementation.
