On his website, Brian Nosek posts this quote:
‘All our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike – and yet it is the most precious thing we have.” – Albert Einstein
Improving science is precious to Nosek and the Center for Open Science at the University of Virginia that he leads.
I interviewed him recently at the “Improving Biomedical Research 2015” conference at Stanford, hosted by METRICS, run by John Ioannidis and Steven Goodman. Here is our podcast episode with that interview:
Nosek and colleagues are experimenting with simple badges or icons to show that researcher-authors of a given manuscript have met the principles of open science. At the METRICS conference, he said these “stupid little badges” increased data sharing in one journal from 3% to 38% within a year.
