To help us prepare for the meetings, and order lunch for everyone (free lunches provided) please register for the next meeting using the registration form


Open science guides have been created for the French, UK, and recently Dutch early career researchers. The goal of the meeting is to go through the guide, and consider working together on creating such a guide for Stanford. 

Additionally, there have been a few recent reproducibility studies that have shown how a large scale reproducibility projects can happen, for the next meeting, we will see if we can have one of the authors present their research:

Reproducibility in Management Science - almost 500 articles from 1 journal were aimed to be reproduced by approx. 700 volunteers. 


February 14th - Presentation from the authors:

High replicability of newly discovered social-behavioural findings is achievable - See Stanford Coverage here

ReproducibiliTea Stanford was launched on 26 October 2022

How much do you trust published research findings? Can you assess whether their methods are rigorous and reproducible? How can you make your own research open and best navigate the incentive structure in academia? ReproducibiliTea Stanford aims to create a welcoming space where graduate students and postdocs come together and discuss questions like these.

ReproducibiliTea is an international community of journal clubs dedicated to advancing Open Science and improving academic research culture. Each of the over 100 ReproducibiliTea Journal Clubs operates independently and selects articles and presentations to discuss that are most relevant to their membership. Students and Postdocs from any research discipline can participate.

On Oct 26th, we launched the Stanford University branch of the ReproducibiliTea Journal Club. Snacks and tea were provided by courtesy of the Stanford Program on Research Rigor and Reproducibility (SPORR).

The event began with a short presentation about ReproducbiliTea by Robert Thibault (current Stanford Postdoc and previous University of Bristol ReproducibiliTea Organizer). The group then discussed the topics that interest them and shared their experiences. Survey is planned to be sent next week to agree on frequency and time for meetings, papers, and topics to discuss.
