Virtual Symposium: A critical analysis of the scientific reform movement

AHP readers may be interested in a virtual symposium taking place April 20, 2021 on “A critical analysis of the scientific reform movement.” Hosted by the Center for Open Science the symposium is described as:

As the science reform movement has gathered momentum to change research culture and behavior relating to openness, rigor, and reproducibility, so has the critical analysis of the reform efforts. This symposium includes five perspectives examining distinct aspects of the reform movement to illuminate and challenge underlying assumptions about the value and impact of changing practices, to identify potential unintended or counterproductive consequences, and to provide a meta perspective of metascience and open science. It’s meta, all the way up. Each presenter will provide a 15-minute perspective followed by a concluding discussion among the panelists and a time to address audience questions.
