Accelerating a Grass-Roots Movement to Advance Open Research

Marcus Munafo
University of Bristol

In this conversation with Marcus Munafo, we covered how Marcus and others built the UK Reproducibility Network and are driving the adoption of open research practices. We debated whether issues in science are mostly due to well-intentioned behavior by humanly-flawed individuals in a suboptimal environment or whether it's more selfish individuals practicing outright fraud. Spoiler: we're not so sure. We also discussed whether change in science needs top-down policies or whether these can even harm the cause.

This podcast is a follow-up conversation to Marcus' Future of Science Seminar.
