Join guest speaker Corina Logan on Tuesday, August 13, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the WRF Data Science Studio for her seminar, “How to improve the value of your research by making it verifiable.”

There is a desperate need to reform the production and dissemination of scholarly outputs to increase transparency, reproducibility, timeliness, and academic rigor. Evidence suggests that open practices actually help researchers rather than hinder them. Logan will discuss what researchers are doing to address these issues by sharing ways to facilitate higher quality research and tackle biases in this rapidly changing world of academia and scholarly publishing.

Corina Logan investigates how behavioral flexibility relates to invasion success in grackles (an urban bird) and humans as a Senior Researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology. She co-leads the #BulliedIntoBadScience campaign where early career researchers are working to change academic culture to adopt open research practices to improve research rigor. You can sign the letter and endorse the campaign at http://bulliedintobadscience.org. Follow along as she learns about grackles, implicit biases, and verifiable research on Twitter (@LoganCorina, https://twitter.com/LoganCorina) and at her website (http://corinalogan.com).
