2020 Metascience Funders Forum

In July 2020, the Center for Open Science hosted a virtual forum for funders of meta interested in metascience—the science of science: investigating how the research process works and how to improve research practices to accelerate discovery.

The forum focused on four themes: open scholarship, replication, changing incentives, and growing the field. Leading researchers shared an overview of each theme and lead an interactive discussion of gaps in the current evidence, while funders shared exemplars of solutions they had implemented. Each thematic session closed with breakout discussions about potential investments to advance research and interventions to implement and test.

We’re glad to share a collection of video discussions from event featuring Fiona Fidler, Katie Corker, Brian Nosek and Simine Vazire.
