Open research is on the rise, but there is still a lot to be done. The #EinsteinFoundationAward​ee 2021 @OSFramework helps to increase transparency & #openaccess by providing technologies & guidelines for scientists and publishers.

So what is the current state of #ResearchQuality? The #EinsteinFoundationAward booklet includes a brief – and incomplete – collection of figures illustrating the main issues and giving outlooks on #reliableresearch.

“To ensure quality, we not only need to look at the science system and its methods, but also at the circumstances shaping researchers' careers” - says Martin Rennert, Chair @Einstein_Berlin, in his preface to the #EinsteinFoundationAward booklet 2021. ➡️einsteinfoundation.de/en/award/bookl…
The Einstein Research Unit "Climate and Water under Change" @cliwac just launched. This transdisciplinary project will address water-related risks under #climate #change in the region Berlin-Brandenburg and will bring together stakeholders, social and natural science.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We would like to thank all friends of the Einstein Foundation for their dedicated work & support: especially the committee members, the award jury, the Damp Foundation, and all researchers. ✨🎄Our Christmas letter: einsteinfoundation.de/index.php?id=2…
What can help build public trust in robust #science? In our #EinsteinFoundationAward booklet, @Stollovo, Managing Director @smc_germany, reflects on the role of journalism in tackling misinformation & in imparting scientific knowledge. #scicomm einsteinfoundation.de/en/award/bookl… pic.twitter.com/q8pPgKoxee
I am standing for office as Publications Chair to foster collaboration of radiologists accross Europe. We need more #openscience, #datasharing, #equality, #sustainability, and #diversity in publishing. Please read my CV here:myesr.org/media/6416 #radres #radiology #myesr twitter.com/myESR/status/1…
The #EinsteinFoundationAward trophy was created by Axel Kufus, Professor of Design @UdK_Berlin_, and is based on a classic tool that has been used to bring knowledge into the world for as long as we can remember: chalk.

In the 50 cases repeated by @OSFramework, the reported effects of a tested theory were at large substantially smaller than levels described in the original articles. The @NIH promised several measures to help improve research quality. More about the study: elifesciences.org/articles/71601
@OSFramework​ tried to repeat 193 cancer biology experim. found in 53 highly cited journal articles ~ 10 years old. Only 50 experim. out of 23 papers could be reran, mostly because of inadequate data files & because authors wouldn't provide missing info. elifesciences.org/articles/67995
The @OSFramework, recently honored with the #EinsteinFoundationAward for Promoting Quality in #Research, showed in a big new study that top-rated #cancer researchers rarely share their data & that their published conclusions typically fail to replicate. timeshighereducation.com/news/third-can…
