I am professor of Social Psychology at the Department of Psychology. The recent discussions about the replicability of psychological effects gave me some pause. I hope (and somehow believe) that "open science" has the potential to increase replicability rates and to raise the quality of psychological research. As member of the executive board of the German Psychological Society, I have contributed to the development and implementation of recommendations regarding data sharing in the scientific community. In my own lab, I encourage the use of open science practices and a full commitment to openness and transparency in our research projects.
