Supporting open and reproducible science | Stanford News

“Open science is a broad goal that includes making data, data analysis, scientific processes and published results easier to access, understand and reproduce. It’s an appealing concept but, in practice, open science is difficult and, often, the costs seem to exceed the benefits. Recognizing both the shortfalls and the promise of open science, Stanford University’s Center for Open and REproducible Science (CORES) – which is part of Stanford Data Science – hopes to make the practice of open science easier, more accessible and more rewarding.

 

Since its launch in September 2020, CORES has been hard at work on the center’s first major efforts. These include developing a guide for open science practices at Stanford – called the “Open by Design” handbook – and producing workshops and a lecture series to help people learn about and contribute to open science across the university….”

The second is to foster methodological innovations that can enhance the adoption and effectiveness of open science practices….”

‘An army of open science evangelists’: Professors launch Center for Open and REproducible Science | The Stanford Daily

“Dozens of professors from Stanford’s science, engineering and humanities departments have come together to launch the Center for Open and REproducible Science last week, an initiative that seeks to increase the transparency, reproducibility and openness of science.

The Center, also known as CORES, is encouraging early adoption of open science practices at Stanford, which include data sharing and study pre-registration. Eventually, it hopes to become the “gold standard” for open science, a fundamental shift that makes science more inclusive by emphasizing accessibility and dissemination of data, methods and tools, rather than just results….”
