Show Your Work. Share Your Work. Advance Science. That's OPEN SCIENCE.
Big news this week -- the results of the Social Sciences Replication Project published August 27th, 2018.
This week, in Nature Human Behavior, a collaborative team of five laboratories published the results of 21 high-powered replications of social science experiments published in Science and Nature, two of the most prestigious journals in science. The team tried to replicate one main finding from every eligible experimental social science paper published between 2010 and 2015. To extend and improve on prior replication efforts, the team obtained the original materials and received the review and endorsement of the protocols from almost all of the original authors before conducting the studies.
At the Center for Open Science, we believe an open exchange of ideas accelerates scientific progress towards solving our most persistent problems. The challenges of disease, poverty, education, social justice, and the environment are too urgent to waste time on studies lacking rigor, outcomes that are never shared, and results that are not reproducible.

How do we support open science globally?
We provide tools, training, support and advocacy for changes in incentives to make research investment go farther, faster.
Research and Data Software Tools
COS has developed a variety of software tools, workflows and data storage solutions called OSF to help researchers manage, archive, discover and share research more openly.
Community and Policy Development
COS helps identify, connect, educate, and support communities of researchers, their affiliated institutions, their funders, and the publishers of research outcomes.
Metascience and Research
COS supports and conductsresearch on scientific practices to help understand how to make research more effective at solving problems. Our team members are thought leaders on open science and our tools serve as critical research platforms.
How can you get started doing open research?
Share Data, Materials or Code
Making your work openly visible to other researchers invites collaboration, allows others to benefit from and build on your work, and facilitates replication. Share your work today!
Share a Paper or Preprint
Sharing a paper or preprint on OSF accelerates scholarly communication, feedback that can improve the work, and discoverability of finished research. Try uploading a paper--it's extremely easy and fast.
