Registration deadline: 6 December

Doing open, reproducible, and transparent research is currently a major topic of discussion within the field of psychology, as it is in many other scientific disciplines.

In psychology, this discussion has often assumed that the research being done uses quantitative methods generally and statistical analyses in particular.

onsequently, there has been less focus on the practice and implications of doing open science using qualitative methods in psychology.

The purpose of this British Psychological Society event is to discuss the practice and implications of open science generally in psychology.

We will focus evenly on the practices, challenges, opportunities, and implications that arise in either quantitative or qualitative research in psychology

We will also pay particular attention to the general topic of open science and how it affects early career researchers in psychology.
