Honoured to receive the Leamer-Rosenthal-Prize

I’m honoured that the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS) chose me for one of the 2016 Leamer-Rosenthal Prizes for Open Social Science! This award comes with a prize of $10,000 and “recognizes important contributions by individuals in the open science movement”. For my contributions to Open Science, see this website. For more details about the price, which is generously donated by the John Templeton Foundation, see here.

BITSS has become one of the central hubs for the global open science movement and does a great job by providing open educational resources (e.g., “Tools and Resources for Data Curation”, or “How to Write a Pre-Analysis Plan”), grants, running the open science catalysts program, and hosting their annual meeting in San Francisco.

Other recipients of the price were Eric-Jan Wagenmakers, Lorena Barba, Zacharie Tsala Dimbuene, Abel Brodeur, Elaine Toomey, Graeme Blair, Beth Baribault, Michèle Nuijten and Sacha Epskamp.

I am optimistically looking into a future of credible, reproducible, and transparent research. Stay tuned for some news from our work here at the department’s Open Science Committee at LMU Munich!
