**You are invited to join an interdisciplinary conference to help engender a shift toward practicing Open Research** About this Event Open Research is a paradigm shift toward reproducible and transparent research in science and research more broadly. Its aim is to deal with factors that undermine research quality, such as the publish or perish culture that underpins widespread selective reporting of findings and other questionable research practices. This conference has invited leading researchers, funders, and initiatives to show how - with Open Research practices and initiatives -- we can bolster the robustness of our research outputs and foster a positive change in research culture. Speakers include: - Marcus Munafo (University of Bristol, UK Reproducibility Network) - Stuart Ritchie (King's College London) - Amy Orben (Cambridge University, ReproducibiliTea) - Dorothy Bishop (University of Oxford, UK Reproducibility Network) - Laura Fortunato (University of Oxford, UK Reproducibility Network) - Ben Bleasdale (Wellcome Trust) - Victoria Moody (JISC) - Lara Speicher (UCL Press) - Kate Button (University of Bath) - Anne Scheel (Eindhoven University of Technology) - James Parry (UKRIO) Topics that will be covered include: - Reproducibility crisis - Fraud, publication bias, incentives - Bottom-up and top-down initiatives Research funding Institutional reform - Improving research practice, quality and culture For more details, list of speakers and their bios, a programme can be found here.
