Jeffrey Spies, Ph.D., is the Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of the non-profit Center for Open Science. In this presentation, Dr. Spies discusses motivations, values, and common experiences of researchers and scholars in research and publication processes. Spies explores biases toward confirmatory research to the exclusion of exploratory research, funding and reward incentives that conflict with scholarly values, and, costs of delayed research publication -- as measured in human lives. This critical approach to ethics and values in research and publication begs the questions “Where would we be if this [publishing] system were a little more reproducible, a little more efficient?” and asks for an examination of values as revealed by our practice; are we implying that some lives matter more than others? Spies discusses how open output [open access] and open workflow policies and practices assist scholars in aligning their scholarly practices more closely to their scholarly values.

In this RCE Podcast, Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres discuss Reproducible Neuroscience with RCE Podcast Chris Gorgolewski from Stanford. "In recent years there has been increasing concern about the reproducibility of scientific results. Because scientific research represents a major public investment and is the basis for many decisions that we make in medicine and society, it is essential that we can trust the results. Our goal is to provide researchers with tools to do better science. Our starting point is in the field of neuroimaging, because that’s the domain where our expertise lies."
