Open Science


We are pleased to announce the CARMA Open Science Portal, your gateway to resources promoting principles and practices of open science for management/organization researchers. These resources include CARMA Webcast Lectures, as well as other recordings and written materials on various aspects of open science. Our Portal is available for anyone to use, and to access our materials. There is no charge.

CARMA Short Course

“Open Science and R: Principles and Practices” – Dr. George Banks, University of North Carolina Charlotte

The open science revolution continues to gain momentum across the social and natural sciences, and in particular, the organizational sciences. This movement is driven in part by a crisis in confidence of scientific research. However, open science offers so much more to scholars and stakeholders of scientific work.  Open science  can serve to accelerate science, facilitate large scale collaboration, and aid individual research teams in conducting more rigorous and relevant work. This short course is intended to introduce open science concepts across the life cycle of research. After taking this course you will be able to engage in open science practices during the full research process and successfully leverage such practices in future journal submissions to demonstrate exceptional methodological rigor. We will cover (a) questionable research practices and publication bias, (b) study preregistration, registered reports, results-blind reviews, preprints, and how to use badges, (c) open data, proper annotation of analytic R code, reproducibility of analyses and transparency checklists, (d) Do’s and Dont’s for replication studies, (e) how to navigate open science platforms, such as the open science framework, large scale project collaboration in management, and finally (f) authorship and contributorship agreements. The course is introductory. Familiarity with some basic statistical concepts, such as null hypothesis significance testing is sufficient.

SIOP/CARMA Open Science Virtual Summer Series


The overall focus of the workshop series is to introduce and teach attendees about open science practices that are widely believed to help researchers produce studies that are better planned and understood by all collaborators involved; more transparent and reproducible; and more accessible, useful, and impactful to the research and practice communities interested in the research. The virtual workshops will be hosted via CARMA’s resources (i.e., Zoom), and attendees can choose to attend any or all virtual workshops.

By attending the summer series, you will learn critical principles and how-tos of open science practices that can be introduced into your research pipeline as well as learn about the perspectives of journal editors and associate editors hoping to encourage open science practices and enhance the robustness of our work (e.g., Lillian Eby of the Journal of Applied Psychology, Steven Rogelberg of the Journal of Business and Psychology).
