Enjoy watching our first promotional video that captures the core of the  OSIRIS project and its objectives!

The need for a paradigm and culture shift in the R&I system is pressing. We must reform it from the top down and the bottom up to restore trust in science. The OSIRIS project is at the forefront of this effort. It aims to facilitate this shift by systematically gathering knowledge on the underlying drivers, testing effective evidence-based solutions, identifying incentives for reproducibility by stakeholders, and embedding reproducibility in research design. This ambitious goal will be realized by a unique team with hands-on expertise in Open Science (OS), reproducibility, implementation, and data sharing, along with a range of committed stakeholders closely involved through our Advisory Board (AB).

Over the past decade, many interventions to improve reproducibility have been introduced, targeted at funders, publishers or individual researchers, but only a few of them have been empirically tested. The Open Science to Increase Reproducibility In Science (OSIRIS) project will do just that, testing existing and newly developed interventions, including Open Science practices, through controlled trials. The underlying drivers, barriers, and incentives of reproducibility will also be studied in a systematic way. The aim is to deliver and disseminate guidance about evidence-based interventions that can improve the reproducibility of scientific findings and develop and test training to implement these.
