Research Ecosystems and Incentives (Prof. Marcus Munafo, University of Bristol)

Abstract

There has been growing interest in the question of research quality in recent years, a situation amplified by the current COVID-19 pandemic. An important question is the extent to which research culture, and current incentives, shape the behaviour of scientists in ways that may not be optimal. I argue that one benefit of adopting open research practices is that these act as an implicit quality control measure, which may serve to improve the quality of scientific outputs, and in turn the efficiency of the scientific process.
