We invite you to our next Leibniz ScienceCampus Colloquium on Thursday, Dec. 6th, at 4.15 p.m. in room 1.134 at the GEMI, Goßlerstraße 14:
Improving Social Perception Research Through Open Science Initiatives
Benedict C Jones (University of Glasgow)
Psychological science suffers from many of the same problems as other biological sciences. For example, low power, together with publication bias, means that a high proportion of published results are likely to be false positives. Additionally, a lack of diversity in both study populations and researchers limits the generalizability of published effects. My talk will highlight these issues in relation to research on social perception of faces. More importantly, I will also describe our lab’s recent work that has used open science initiatives to address these challenges. These initiatives include large-scale, world-wide multi-lab collaborations, registered reports, and the use of data-driven, rather than theory-driven, approaches to understanding how we evaluate faces.
If you are interested in meeting Benedict during his visit, please contact Tanja Gerlach (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The colloquium dinner will be on Thursday at 6.30 p.m. in the restaurant Fellini, Groner-Tor-Straße 28. To join the dinner, please send me an email until Monday, Dec 3rd.
With best regards
