ReproducibiliTea is a global initiative bringing journal clubs on reproducibility and open science to, at the time of writing, about 20 countries spread over 4 continents. There is more information on the initiative and current chapter on the ReproducibiliTea website.
- learn about cool papers/initiatives related to open open science and reproducibility
- have friendly and engaging discussions about open science and reproducibility
- meet new people interested in these topics in the Radboud campus
We want this journal club to reflect the interests of its members–you! You can add your suggestions and contact information here. Suggestions can be peer-reviewed papers, but also preprints, blog posts, iniatives etc.
When you suggest papers for discussion please keep these guidelines in mind:
- the topic of the paper should be relevant for open science (e.g. pre-registration, replicability, reproducibility, robustness, open access, transparency, inclusivity, diversity, philosophy of science)
- length should not exceed 12 pages (for journal-formatted papers; 24 for double-spaced ones)
- not too technical please–discussion should be accessible to be people of different backgrounds!
The journal club will meet monthly (usually the 3rd Wednesday of the month; see exact dates below) at 15:00. During the lockdown, meetings take place online.
The person who suggested the topic of discussion will introduce it in 10 minutes or under and then we discuss! Meetings will last no longer than an hour.
In the presentation of the paper/topic of discussion identify:
- the problem the paper addresses
- the solution the paper advocates
- the relevance of the paper (for the presenter or more generally)
- what is special about the paper
- the limitations of the paper
