Have you ever hit a paywall and could not access an article without being asked to pay for it? Wouldn’t it be great if all research would be transparent and openly available?
In this episode we talk about open science in dysphagia research with James Borders. He takes a deep dive into the core practices of open science: pre-registration, self-archiving, gold open access, open data and registered reports. He also discusses the findings of a recent survey on the knowledge, implementation, and perceived benefits and barriers of open science practices in communication science disorders in the US that he has conducted together with his colleagues (click here for the manuscript preprint). And most importantly, James shares valuable tips on how to start making your own research more open and how open science can help not only researchers but also clinicians.
