LTC Targeted Audience Lunch - Open Scholarship for Every Discipline

Tue, February 27, 2024 • 11:45am - 1:00pm (1h 15m) • AGH Meeting Room

The motto of the Royal Society is Nullius in verba ("no one's words" or "take nobody's word for it"). In elementary school, this is taught as “show your work.” However, in every discipline, much of the process of research is not included in the final product (i.e., book or article). For example, our scholarship may not include sufficient detail about how data are collected and analyzed to enable others to reproduce the work. Many disciplines don’t have norms of sharing their gathered research materials (aka "data") or their methods or analysis code. Furthermore, given the nature of academic publishing, individuals who are not at academic institutions may not even be able to read or even access our scholarship. In this talk, we discuss ways that all disciplines may benefit from embracing greater transparency in their work. These benefits include building equity, creating more reproducible and robust scholarship, and providing training to our students that fosters transferable skills across disciplines.
