Reproducible science

Experiment Factory Experiment Factory is an “an open source framework for the development and deployment of web-based experiments.” We developed this platform to run our large scale multiwave online experiments. It consists of a Python application and a repository of behavioral experiments and surveys coded in javascript using jsPsych (de Leeuw, 2015). As we hoped for it has been used by other researchers for their experiments as well.

Reproducible meta-analysis This is a prospective project in a very early stage that I want to continue working on in the near future. The broad aim is to build tools that would enable researchers to conduct fast and reproducible meta-analyses. Some components I am currently considering include:

  • Standardized data format for meta-analysis search results
  • Browser widget that saves dated search queries and results
  • Online platform to upload published/unpublished datasets
  • Result and keyword extractor from published papers
  • Crowd-sourced tagging system of extracted results
  • Search engine to filter extracted results
