Journal Club: "ReproducibiliTea: Operationalization's Hidden Role in Scientific Reproducibility" (01.12.2023)


After a successful third session this semester, we are excited to invite you to the next session of our journal club. The session will revolve around the topic of operationalization in psychological research, and with the session based on the paper „When numbers fail: do researchers agree on operationalization of published research?“ by Haucke et al., we will discuss how the validity of operationalization in scientific studies affects researchers' ability to infer research questions and their judgments of study quality. 

When: Friday, 01.12.2023, 2:30-4:00pm
Where: Room 1302 at Leopoldstraße 13, Munich or via Zoom (Meeting ID: 862 732 7746 / Password: 347052)
Paper: Haucke, M., Hoekstra, R., & van Ravenzwaaij, D. (2021). When numbers fail: do researchers agree on operationalization of published research? Royal Society Open Science, 8(9), 191354.

Procedure: Two members of the organising team, Finia Loeb and Gracia Prüm, will summarise the paper by Haucke et al. There will then be an open discussion where you can contribute your own thoughts and questions. Finally, there will be time to get to know each other and talk in smaller groups.
