The Taiwan Institute for Governance and Communication Research (TIGCR) invites Associate Professor Nick Bowman to deliver an online public speech on " Heraclitus and the Standards of Science: A Case for Considering Open Science Practices in Communication Science ".
About the Speech
Science is a field that presents knowledge while paradoxically complicated and updating the same. This turbulence can be found in the very evolutions of our scientific standards of practice, from how we conduct work and collect data to how we analyze, present, and share our work with interested audiences. In response to broad calls for transparency in science and recognizing the affordances of online knowledge distribution, a growing number of communication scholars, journals, institutions, and learned associations are encouraging us to reconsider how we produce science for maximum impact. Our current presentation will (a) review the genesis of open science practices, (b) outline an agenda of seven open science practices relevant to communication science, (c) discuss costs and benefits associated with this agenda and (d) provide specific recommendations and examples for adopting some or all of the proposed agenda in your own research, including special considerations for political communication research. The online session will include a follow-up question and answer session.
