Publishing data and study protocols in a transparent manner, providing acquired raw data and enabling the reproduction of scientific results vastly improves the credibility of all sciences. Our group is devoted to the promotion of open science ideals, such as publicly accessible data, the utilisation of open source analysis tools and free education on current methodology. The overall goal is to both enhance the reliability of statistical results and to advance the non-commercial sharing of ideas. For this purpose, we offer resources (i.e. workshops, hackrooms, seminars) as wells as an engaged community to young and experienced scientists to pursue their research. Hopefully, these efforts contribute to a more open discussion in science.

02.01.2018 - more info on open science

To give you more information on open science we descriped the six principles of open science in detail on this separate page.

02.01.2018 - workshop on open & reproducible neuroscience

Together with peeps from the Goethe University Frankfurt and the Université de Lausanne we organized a free “open & reproducible neuroscience using python” 3-day workshop which will be a satellite event of the 60th TEAP next March. The website is now online and can be found here.

02.01.2018 - public talk on electronic lab notebooks

On 22nd of January at 4 pm we will be at a talk on the implementation of electronic lab notebooks. There will be multiple speakers on the applications, spread and on current developments of digital management system for research data. More information on the event can be found here
