Milestone of today: first in-person meeting of the Belgian Reproducibility Network at the prestigious Palace of the Academies in Brussels, with representatives from most main Belgian universities

The Italian Ministry for Research has involved us (Davide Crepaldi) in a working group on research integrity and security.
One first step in this group is collecting relevant documentation on these issues. Official, possibly binding documents is what we’re looking for - primarily nationally, but input from our international peeps would be most welcome.
We’re thrilled to start working at the institutional level!

Must read: On the long-term archiving of research data
A preprint by Cyril Pernet, Claus Svarer, Ross Blair, John D. Van Horn, Russell A. Poldrack
"As data sharing becomes the norm, it is essential to clarify responsibilities about who ensures access to the data and in what form. Repositories should clearly state for how long data are guaranteed or just likely to be shared, state who decides when data should move to cold storage (using which criteria) and who is responsible for cold storage..."

Article by Alexander Trevelyan:
"What has risen to the fore over the last few years in these fields is not only a replication crisis, but also a fabrication crisis. It’s a crisis that peer review—or editorial review, for that matter—currently appears utterly incapable of surmounting."

"The secrecy and deference by journal editors cultivates a culture of hesitation and silence; why risk upsetting the nasty investors and putting yourself at risk of lawsuit when there’s no discernible evidence that anything will come of it?"

Five selfish reasons to work reproducibly by Florian Markowetz

"And so, my fellow scientists: ask not what you can do for reproducibility; ask what reproducibility can do for you! Here, I present five reasons why working reproducibly pays off in the long run and is in the self-interest of every ambitious, career-oriented scientist". ⬇️

In this same room I defended my PhD exactly 10 years ago. It was nice to come back and present at one of the initiatives I care about the most: the @italianrepro
