About ReproducibiliTeas all over the world

ReproducibiliTea journal clubs help early career researchers build a local community of ECRs interested in open and reproducible research. It can be very isolating to be one of the few within a research group, or department, that are actively engaged or interested in improving research practices. ReproducibiliTea helps researchers who want to change this.

We all know how horrible it can be to jump through annoying administrative hurdles or dodge financial barriers to ultimately try to make a positive change. Setting up a ReproducibiliTea Journal Club is easy, free and does not need any admin approval. In a ReproducibiliTea Journal Club, papers are selected that are broadly relevant to the replication crisis and scientific improvements. The journal club is advertised around the department or university, raising awareness of reproducibility and Open Science in the process. The chosen papers are then discussed during regular journal club meetings, often over cups of tea, lunch or snacks.

The ReproducibiliTea Journal Club has proven to be a success in Oxford, where it was founded, and has received widespread international recognition. There are now more than 83 other ReproducibiliTea Journal Clubs registered to date, with more joining at an increasingly faster rate.

About Frankfurt ReproducibiliTea

Our journal club “ReproducibiliTea” is organized by the Frankfurt Open Science Initiative, located within the Goethe University, and is open to anyone who is interested in the topic.

This winter term, we start on 4th of November 2021 and we are meeting again online from 4pm to 5pm. Afterwards, there is time for discussions to flourish and for general questions about open science (e.g., where and how can I upload my data?). All relevant materials as well as the latest schedule can be found on our OSF page - click here.

Co-hosts of the Journal Club are Julia Beitner, Alexa von Hagen, Gözem Turan and Elli Zey. Feel free to contact them, if you have any questions! & also see Twitter for additonal announcements.
