There's always plenty of things going on within GRN and in the field of reproducible research. Here's a couple of recent activities and updates at a glance:



The elections for the GRN Steering Committee draw closer. There are four seats to be filled. Each initiatve/ organizational member can propose a candidate and will have one vote for the election.

Proposals can be submitted until 15.05.2022. Elections will be held on 30.05.2022.

We are very excited about this election and look forward to seeing how the GRN will develop with the help of their new SC members!

Looking Back: Virtual Brainstorming Event

March 2-3rd, 2022

More than 90 participants took part in a joint virtual brainstorming event concerning education about reproducibility and open science.

A variety of issues were discussed, such as resources and strategies used in training and opportunities to further improve reproducibility education in Germany, and project ideas and education material were developed. This was a great first starting point for next steps on the local as well as national level.

Thank you to all our participants for this wonderful event!

ScreenIT reports on COVID-19 preprints now available through Sciety

ScreenIT reports on COVID-19 preprints are now available through Sciety, a free platform that allows readers to quickly find and examine peer review reports on bioRxiv and medRxiv preprints. ScreenIT is a collection of automated tools that screen preprints for common problems that affect transparency and reproducibility (e.g. reporting of blinding and randomization, power calculations, protocol pre-registration, limitations sections, etc.). Learn more about how you can use Sciety to access ScreenIT reports, as well as peer reviews of COVID-19 preprints here
