PLENARY SESSION: OPEN SCIENCE PRACTICES IN EATING DISORDER RESEARCH: OPPORTUNITIES, CHALLENGES, AND POSSIBLE GUIDELINES
Chicago 9/10

Open Science is a global movement to increase the accessibility to scientific research in order to foster collaboration and innovation, increase scientific rigor and reproducibility, encourage data integration, and accelerate the translation of basic research into clinical practice. Increasingly, funders demand Open Science practices, and scientific journals are following suit. These requirements pose logistical burdens and raise ethical or intellectual property concerns. EDRS members should shape the future of Open Science in our field. Two brief talks will set the stage to engage EDRS attendees in a discussion of the Open Science framework and offer practical strategies for increasing transparency and reproducibility in eating disorder research. Weissman will introduce the Open Science framework, provide examples of specific rigor and reproducibility criteria, and summarize findings of a study of open science practices as reflected in manuscripts published in three eating disorder journals. An important component of Open Science is data sharing. Crosby, based on extensive collaborative experience across the globe, will share practical guidelines and tips regarding sharing data. The presenters then will facilitate audience discussion of how our field should address the opportunities and challenges arising from the Open Science movement and of possible guidelines for protecting investigators and participants from misuse or unintended consequences of open science practices.
