At the lab we are guided by the principles of open science. We make all our papers available as Open Access, and often post our work as preprints. Whenever possible in the context of secondary data analysis, we preregister our analysis plans to maximize transparancy (e.g, 1, 2, 3)
We are research symbionts – We contribute to the scientific community by facilitating access to large datasets through our data portal. This has already led to 600 groups from all over the world making use of our anonymized dataset, increasing the scientific value yielded from our study well beyond our own team. Additionally, we are part of international collaborations such as Lifebrain which bring together cohorts across Europe to maximize the scientific value and generalizability of our findings. At the same time, we benefit from amazing resources such as Biobank ABCD, SHARE, and NKI-RS, as well as individual collaborations, to allow us to answer challening interdisciplinary questions using the best data available. In addition to papers and data, we endeavour to share stimuli (e.g. 1, 2), slides, code (e.g. 1, 2, 3 ) and data (e.g. 1, 2, 3) available on resources such as Figshare, the Open Science framework, Github, and preprint servers such as BiorXiv and PsyArxiv.
