Public Lectures on research ethics in times of replication crises and Open Science

(19.06.2019) On Monday, June 24, the Research Training Group “Trust and Communication in a Digitized World” organizes three public lecturse (of which one will be held in English) adressing current questions concerning research ethics.

The following public lecture will be held in English:

10:15: Prof. Dietram Scheufele, University of Wisconsin-Madison & Mercator-Fellow at the Research Training Group “Trust and Communication in a Digitized World”
Computational Methods, Replicability and Reproducibility
What are the implications of the ubiquitous use of computational methods for replicability and reproducibility? Are other fields like Communication Science facing similar or different problems as psychology? And do we even want science that is perfectly replicable? This talk will follow on a report of a U.S. National Academies Committee and will cover ethics of replicability in an age of computational methods
Date: June 24, 10:00-14:00
Place: Gerichtssaal der WWU Weiterbildung (Königsstraße 47, 48143 Münster)
