A new series on “Improving Neuroscience”

I (Dr. Bob) am excited to be organizing a new series of papers in eNeuro on Improving Neuroscience.

eNeuro has been leading the way for rigorous and reproducible research for some time. This new series will provide accessible, authoritative, hands-on tutorials for steps you can take to improve your research. We’ll cover sample-size planning, how to prove a negligible effect, per-registration, Bayesian methods, and much more.

If you have a topic you’d love to see covered or a tutorial you’d like to contribute, let me know!

Here is the editorial I wrote announcing this project ​(Calin-Jageman, 2024)​: https://www.eneuro.org/content/11/3/ENEURO.0048-24.2024. This all grew out of the editorial I wrote in 2019 about improving statistical practices in neuroscience ​(Calin-Jageman & Cumming, 2019)​.

Can’t say much yet, but already have a couple of great authors lined up to contribute tutorials. More soon!
