Brian Nosek is co-Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Open Science, which seeks to enable open and reproducible research practices through its Open Science Framework. Nosek is also a Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia. He received his Ph.D. from Yale University in 2002.
He co-founded Project Implicit, a multi-university collaboration for research and education investigating implicit cognition—thoughts and feelings that occur outside of awareness or control. Brian investigates the gap between values and practices, such as when behavior is influenced by factors other than one’s intentions and goals. Research applications of this interest include implicit bias, decision-making, attitudes, ideology, morality, innovation, and barriers to change. Nosek applies this interest to improve the alignment between personal and organizational values and practices. In 2015, he was named one of Nature’s 10 and was included in the Chronicle for Higher Education Influence list.Conference
Culture change toward more open, rigorous, and reproducible research
Summary » Brian Nosek
Improving openness, rigor, and reproducibility in research is less a technical challenge and more a social challenge. Current practice is sustained by dysfunctional incentives that prioritizes publication over accuracy and privacy over transparency. The consequence is unnecessary inefficiency in research progress. Successful culture change requires coordinated policy, incentive, and normative changes across stakeholders to improve research credibility and accelerate progress. Some stakeholder groups and disciplines are making more progress than others. We can change the system, but if we do not act collectively we will fail. Let’s not fail.
