At RCC we embrace sound open science practices! We are also actively engaged in various research projects assessing the use of open science practices and other avenues for improving the scientific process. See for instance this newly published paper, which involved PhD fellow at RCC Theiss Bendixen: ”An empirical assessment of transparency and reproducibility-related research practices in the social sciences (2014–2017)”, published in Royal Society Open Science.

The conclusion? "Our empirical assessment of a random sample of articles published between 2014 and 2017 suggests a serious neglect of transparency and reproducibility in the social sciences."

More sound open science is needed!
