- Eric Laureys / Belgian federal Open Access Project

The Belgian Federal Science Policy Office is setting up a Open Access repository for all federal research institutions and is issueing a strong Open Access mandate to go with it. 

- Chris Hartgerink / Mining statistics from psychology papers

With the support of the ContentMine community, I am building a database of statistical test results reported in psychology articles. Each article contains a trove of information and certain elements can be used to answer an array of research questions. Our current database is already the largest of its kind (~250,000 results; osf.io/gdr4q), but limited to a prespecified format of in-line results, which we would like to extend to figures etc. The aim is to create the database, share it publicly, and then work on research questions such as estimating the prevalence of potential data fabrication. 

- Sebastiaan Mathôt / OpenSesame: An experiment builder for the social sciences

OpenSesame is an open-source tool for developing experiments in neuroscience, psychology, and experimental economics. I would love to give a short overview of the project, and my experiences as manager of an open-source project.

- Zack Batist / An investigation of archaeological practice with regards to the organization, integration and re-use of data

The production and utilization of data is a persistent yet inconsistent aspect of archaeological research. As larger volumes of information are increasingly being integrated and re-used for various purposes, we need to critically reflect on archaeological practice with regards to interactions with and construction of data. The aim of my thesis is to evaluate the manner in which the archaeological record is assigned meaning, how data is transformed through various forms of analysis and interpretation, and how the integration of data from different sources is either facilitated or limited.
