University

For centuries, access to knowledge and education was the privilege of the rich and powerful. Around the 17th century, the idea of public education changed that, however access to information on the ongoing cutting edge research is still guarded as the founders and investors pursue patents and commercial gains resulting from scientific discoveries. In April 2018, the EU adopted an Open Science Policy to transform science through digital tools and networks, to make research more open, global, collaborative, creative and closer to society. The idea became especially relevant during the coronavirus pandemic, when researcher around the world were racing to produce a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. In her lecture, Dr. Katarzyna Jaśko from the Jagiellonian University will talk about the concept of Open Science and its relevance for doctoral students.

The lecture, organized by SWPS University's Interdisciplinary Doctoral School is a part of the series The Challenges of the Humanities of the 21st Century.

The lecture will be delivered in English.

Doing open science when you are a Ph.D. student

Over the past few years, there has been a lot of heated discussions on how to improve science. These discussions resulted in a number of changes and practical recommendations for conducting research in the spirit of open science. The goal of the lecture is to present the relevance of open science practices, such as preregistration, data sharing, replications, and preprints, for doctoral students. Dr. Jaśko will also discuss possible limitations of these practices and she will present available resources that can help implement these practices in doctoral research.

European Union’s Open Science Policy

“Open science is a policy priority for the European Commission and the standard method of working under its research and innovation funding programmes as it improves the quality, efficiency and responsiveness of research.

When researchers share knowledge and data as early as possible in the research process with all relevant actors it helps diffuse the latest knowledge.

And when partners from across academia, industry, public authorities and citizen groups are invited to participate in the research and innovation process, creativity and trust in science increases.” (Source »)

As a member of the European Council for Doctoral Education, SWPS University’s Interdisciplinary Doctoral School supports the EU Open Science Policy and promotes the idea among young researchers and the academic community.

258 Katarzyna Jaśko

Speaker

Katarzyna Jaśko, Ph.D. – is a researcher at the Institute of Psychology of the Jagiellonian University. She is interested in psychological mechanisms that influence the perception of social justice in unequal intergroup settings. Specifically, she studies the relation between social identity and psychological reactions to intergroup inequalities and perception of discrimination by members of low-status groups in various social contexts. Her second area of interest focuses on motivational and cognitive underpinnings of decision-making processes.

 

Progress and development are like a relay race, where one generation of visionaries, idealists and researchers passes the baton of experience and knowledge to next generations. The concept of Open Science is an important catalyst in this process. The EU adopted an Open Science Policy in 2018 to fuel innovation. The importance of this idea became clear during the current pandemic and the global efforts in producing the COVID-19 vaccine. We will have an opportunity to hear about the relevance and various aspects of Open Science from Dr. Katarzyna Jaśko from the Jagiellonian University.
