Our team actively support efforts towards a more transparent and reliable psychological science. Wherever possible, we aim to pre-register our studies on the Open Science Framework and to provide Open material, Open data, and Reproducible Code. We have signed the Commitment to Research Transparency and Open Science and a number of our projects and publications are documented at the Open Science Framework.

In addition we established an Open Science Initiative in our Department that is associated with the Network for Open Science Initiatives in Germany (NOSI) and published on the topic of Open Science:
