You want to get into Open Science? Welcome!
We all started somewhere and know it can be daunting. Here are three ways to make it as easy and painless as possible!
Way 1: Want to start your own journal club?
Do it! It’s a low commitment, fun and flexible way to start spreading Open Science ideas in your department. It allows you to learn the fundamentals together with the people you work with. Making it easier to implement new ideas and practices. We also have an active Slack community where ReproducibiliTea organizers support each other.
We have an OSF page where you can download all the necessary materials that you can freely share and adapt. There you will find:
- A welcome letter telling you more about ReproducibiliTea
- The ReproducibiliTea Logo
- Various ReproducibiliTea poster templates
- A sample checklist for organising your own Journal Club
- Paper suggestions for what to cover
- And much much more …
If you are planning to start your own ReproducibiliTea journal club, all you have to do is to please get in touch with us (firstname.lastname@example.org)! We will send you the sign up details to get you on our website, Slack group and add you to our mailing list.
Way 2: Want to join an existing journal club?
We now have journal clubs set up in many universities. There is probably one in your area:
Our ReproducibiliTEA journal club is open to both staff and students within the School of Psychology at Aston University. At each meeting, we will discuss a key paper within the theme of ‘Replication, Reproducibility and Open Science’, with the journal club open to both novices and experts. The journal club will begin with a brief overview of a chosen paper with the remainder of the session dedicated to free discussion amongst attendees. You are also free to host a session yourself! We are hoping for a diverse range of attendees from students to Early Career Researchers and Professors. We hope that this journal club will provide a current overview of the Open Science Movement and invite both skeptics and enthusiasts alike! Given the journal clubs name, it is also essential that our meetings include a good cuppa’ tea and biscuits. We look forward to seeing you there and joining the movement.
We meet every second or third Wednesday, from 5 pm to 6 pm. A meeting begins with a short presentation about the paper we read, followed by a discussion. Everyone and every perspective are welcome!
Please get in touch via email Read the paper and come by for tea and discussion!
Next meeting: 19th Oct 2022
About us: We are excited to bring the first ReproducibiliTea journal club to Norway! We are two PhD candidates at BI Norwegian Business School (Department of Leadership and Organizational Behavior) organizing this journal club together. The journal club is open to everyone at BI Norwegian Business School, staff and students, across departments (and campuses). Everyone is welcome to join us - whether you are an enthusiast, skeptic, or a cautious explorer. Feel free to get in touch if you are interested to participate or contribute!
- provide an informal and friendly platform for discussions about open science and reproducibility
- help each other get familiarized with open science practices (e.g., pre-registrations, sharing data, sharing preprints, etc.)
- connect students and researchers from various specializations who are interested in open science
Format: Before each meeting, we read an article on open science practices and methods in general, which we then discuss during the meeting. At each meeting, a presenter begins by providing a short overview of the paper and facilitates the discussion throughout the meeting. Anyone can propose a possible paper or topic to present if we have not covered it already. More recently, we have held more practical workshops on open science practices. We have also invited guest speakers. Please feel free to reach out to us if you’d like to give us a talk or workshop on anything related to open science and reproducibility!

The ReproducibiliTea in Graz, Austria is organized by Gabriela Hofer (Differential Psychology) and Hilmar Brohmer (Science Communication) and is greatly supported by the Graz Open Science Initiative (@GrazOpenScience).
We are slowly evolving from a journal club of psychology papers to a multidisciplinary discussion group.
Moreover, our increasing number of attendees demonstrates an interest in Open Science-related topics throughout academic disciplines: In the spring / summer semester 2019 we counted usually 5 to 7 members per session. In fall / winter semester 2019/20 we are in the double digits (so far). After the (main part of the) pandemic, we count approximately 10 attendees.
If you are interested to join our ReproducibiliTea please get in touch and come along!
The ReproducibiliTea Groningen aims to
- increase awareness, knowledge and skills for open and reproducible science;
- build an open science community, to help, learn from and support each other in our open science endeavors;
- assist in making regular (small) steps towards open & reproducible science.
The idea is to have regular meetings on any reproducibility related topic, from discussing bias in the literature, a work-session on preprints/preregistrations or a workshop on r-markdown/Github. What the contents will be exactly is to be decided by us all and will change from meeting to meeting. We aim to be a journal club plus, in that we try to focus on practical use; hence workshops make up quite a bit of the sessions. Furthermore we’re closely related to the Open Science Community Groningen, which also hosts some of our collaboratively written blogposts on open science
We meet every two weeks, meeting times switch every week between 10.00 - 11.00 am. and 14.00 - 15.00 pm., hopefully enabling more people to join. Everyone is welcome, from any discipline and backgrounds, open-science minded or not at all. Swing by, drop in, have a cookie, and enjoy the ride!

We are based at the Dept. of Psychology at Lund University and we are a group of PhD students who are interested in learning more about Open and Reproducible Science.
The Lyon Neuroscience Research Center (LNRC) student club is organized by a few PhD students of the center, with no specific leader (here we rolled a dice to choose the JC communication ‘lead’). Student club sessions are organized on a monthly basis. They consist in a presentation of a paper, principle, software, method, etc somehow related to neuroscience which is then discussed in the way of locally trying to ‘fix science’. We seek to be very careful regarding the idea that any comments have to be welcomed and discussed regardless of the scientific statute at play. By ‘student club’, we do not mean that we exclude extra-student staff. They are all welcome, but we seek to stick to the bottom-up fashion of discussing, proposing, etc. In practice, our student club is also a chill-out time during which we drink tea and eat cakes.
Our Reproducibilitea journal club meets 4 times per year, and is in collaboration with the Open Science Community Maastricht. We aim to make Open Science visible at Maastricht University, and to facilitate discussion between researchers, departments and faculties on integrating open science in everyday research.

ReproducibiliTea Rotterdam is a journal club organized by the Open Science Community Rotterdam (OSCR). We discuss documents addressing various topics on open science practices.
Every session, one discussant chooses a published article, preprint, or blog post about a specific open science topic (e.g., the advantages of publishing your work in open access journals, criticism of pre-publication peer review, best practices of data/code curation/sharing, …). The discussant prepares a short presentation (5’-15’) summarizing the main points of the document, but the bulk of the meeting (45’-55’) is dedicated to open discussion: is the topic relevant for your field of research? In case of specific issues, has anybody proposed and/or implemented some solutions? Can any of these solutions be translated, scaled, and applied in other research areas?
Even though some papers, at first glance, seem to relate only to a specific discipline (e.g., psychology has been working on open science issues quite intensively in the past years), we aim to extract general lessons that can be helpful for researchers in different fields.
A different discussant will take care of the initial summary, ensuring that different research areas are represented.
This journal club is open to everyone: PhD candidates, post-docs, junior and senior faculty, from any school/department at EUR and ErasmusMC. Interested Bachelor and Master students are also welcome to join, especially if it can be helpful for their thesis. Interested parties not employed at EUR or ErasmusMC can send an email to the lead organizer with a request to join specific sessions.
From November 2019 to March 2020 we used to meet on the second Wednesday of every month at 11:00. From April 2020 onward we meet online. Around two weeks before the session, an invitation is sent via the mailing list of the Open Science Community Rotterdam (to be included, please contact the lead organizer). Announcements are also made on our website (News section) and on Twitter (@OSCRotterdam).

University of Murcia
Our ReproducibiliTea JC takes place the last week of each month in a hybrid format.
We welcome anyone who is interested in discussing open science! Follow us on Twitter and sign up our mailing list for more details.
With the “Bielefeld University Reproducible Science Tea” (BURST) group, we would like to contribute to making the process and results of scientific work more transparent and accessible. Topics that concern us include free access to publications, analysis code, data and hypotheses. Open and reproducible research is not meant to be a new niche or alternative to traditional research, but the implementation of what most of us intuitively consider to be standard research ( “Open science is just science done right” ).
The BURST-group is scheduled to meet on the first Friday of each month, and will discuss articles on the topics of open and reproducible science, as well as new developments and ideas arising in our disciplines.
Our meetings are open to both students and scientific staff in psychology and in neighbouring fields. Everyone is invited to suggest topics and articles for discussion and to participate in the organisation of the meetings.

A lot of great information on open and reproducible science can be found on the internet, and we will make extensive use of these resources. Founding a group at Bielefeld University and offering local meetings (at the university or via Zoom) is meant to facilitate a more interactive exchange among us, and to provide us all with the opportunity to bring forward our individual questions and ideas, so that we can all shape the direction the group will take in the future.
Therefore, we are looking forward to your participation and your contributions.
See you soon!
The ReproducibiliTea Vienna was founded by the Early Career Researchers of the Faculty of Psychology. It is meeting once a month in order to discuss papers on open science and exchange our own open science research practices. ReproducibiliTEA Vienna is open to researchers from all areas and from all stages of research (early career to senior academics).
