Laura and John Arnold Foundation
$4,404,400

Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology is a research initiative to conduct direct replications of 50 high-impact cancer biology studies. The project aims to learn more about predictors of reproducibility, common obstacles to conducting replications, and how the current scientific incentive structure affects research practices. 


Grant support for multi-site reproducibility study on Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation - COS provided grant management for the project.


LJAF's support of the Preregistration Challenge offers researchers who preregister a study and later have their research efforts published a $1,000 prize. The Laura and John Arnold Foundation supports the Center for Open Science and its efforts to foster open, reliable, and rigorous scientific research.



darpa

DARPA
$770,090

DARPA's Next Generation Social Science (NGS2) program aims to build new capabilities (methods, models, tools, and a community of researchers) to perform rigorous, reproducible experimental research at scales necessary to understand emergent properties of human social systems. COS serves as the Testing & Evaluation team using OSF as a data management, sharing, and preservation platform; assisting with preregistration of experimental designs and analysis plans for increased rigor and reproducibility; and managing Registered Reports, prediction markets and reproducibility efforts.


In early 2018, COS was awarded a budget increase to the DARPA Next Generation Social Sciences program. This funding supported a literature review and technical exchange meeting to identify limitations to understanding and predicting complex social systems, and provide solutions to fundamentally change and improve research on complex social systems.
