An early career researcher’s view on modern and open scholarship – Laurent Gatto

Abstract: If research is the by-product of researchers getting promoted (a quote byDavid Barron, Professor of Computer Science, Prof. Leslie Carr, personal communication), then shouldn’t we, early career researchers (ECRs), focus on promotion and being docile academic citizens rather than aiming for the more noble cause of pursuing research to understand the world that surrounds us, and disseminate our findings using modern channels? Indeed, I have already argued that a critical point that is failing us, is the academic promotion of open research and open researcher, as a way to promote a more rigorous and sound research process and tackle the reproducibility crisis. In this talk, I will present the case for open scholarship from an early career researcher’s perspective, pointing out that being an open researcher is not only the right thing to do, but is also the best thing to do.

  1. Indeed ‘we’ should, at least if we want to get a tenure and advance in academia.
    I did the mistake, as a starting professor, to try and pursue what is is interesting rather then what will get me publications. 10 years after I ca certainly say – bad career move.

    This is too real to be funny.
