ReproducibiliTea January 14, 11-12.00: What would you do to improve open science?

Dear all,

We hope that you all had a good start of the new year! Below are three announcements from your favorite Tea brewers:

To begin with, the next ReproducibiliTea meeting is on January 14, 2021 (yes, that’s in 3 days already!). We ‘d like to have a discussion about how to improve Open Science. If you had money (say, 50.000 euros), what would you do with it to enhance (Open) Science in general? The topic is inspired by the recent launch of a new NWO funding instrument ( We’ll have a brainstorm on big ideas (what would you do with 50.000 euros?) and while we’re at it, address smaller goals as well. What are your Open Science goals for 2021?

Second, you will have noticed that we were forced to reschedule our last meeting in December to an afternoon session. It turned out that some people were happy with that because they were not able to attend otherwise. Therefore we decided to alternate morning and afternoon sessions starting as of now. In general, the meetings in the first half of the month (i.e. coming Thursday) are planned at the usual time (11.00 am), whereas the session in the second half of the month (i.e., January 28) will be an afternoon session (2 – 3 pm). We’ll try it out for a few months and see how it goes.

Lastly, we’d like to draw your attention to the preregistration Q&A session.on January 19, 13:00 – 14:00 (online) organised by The Open Science Community Groningen (OSCG) and the Young Enthusiastic Social Scientists of Behavioural and Social Sciences (YESS BSS). If you have questions regarding pre-registration or need help with your own pre-registration, you may want to join.To receive a link to the online session, please send an email with subject ‘participation to pre-registration session’ to
