“Making Better Science Easier”

 Speaker: Dr. Leslie McIntosh - CEO of Ripeta

Open science is important, but it is also hard. Unfortunately, “hard” has often meant that scientific quality checks are both slow and inadequate, falling in an unsatisfactory middle ground between two opposing goals. Currently, it can take months or years publish the results of one’s research, yet the lengthy peer review process does not guarantee that science will be open, transparent, and reproducible.


In this presentation “Making Better Science Easier”, Dr. McIntosh will walk through recent improvements in scientific publishing. She will specifically highlight how policy affects practice and how to simultaneously increase the speed and accuracy of quality checks.
