On the importance of Open Science

In my last post, I refrained from standing on my Open Science soapbox; that’s not the case in this one. However, before I dig into why Open Science is near and dear to my heart, I want to take some time to cover some basic concepts. After all, it seems like the terms “Open Science” and “QRPs” are becoming buzz words in many contexts, at least from my perspective as a graduate student.

First post!

Hello, world! Thanks for taking the time to read my first blog post! While I am trained as a social psychologist, I’m a big proponent of leveraging data science tools to understand the world around us. Thus, I plan to discuss a mixture of data-driven topics and insights here. I hope to use this blog as a place to write about things that interest me, but focus will likely be on statistics, research methods, open science, social psychology, and data science.
