In late 2020, we decided to expand the ReproducibiliTea Steering Community in order to make sure, we keep the early career researcher (ECR) perspective to building open science communities as well as allowing for more diverse perspectives. Consequently last year we started a new call for applications to again bring fresh impulses to our work.

So without further ado:

Please join us in welcoming our new committee members:

Helena Gellersen

Helena received her PhD in psychology from the University of Cambridge where she was also a co-organiser of the ReproducibiliTea journal club. She is now a postdoc at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases.

Paulina Manduch (on LinkedIn)

Paulina is a psychology student at the SWPS University in Warsaw, Poland, working on her master’s thesis on creativity and memory. Paulina is the chair of the Open Science Society at her university and she co-organises online ReproducibiliTea meetings in the Polish language.

And, our new committee chair:

Jan Vornhagen

Jan will follow Sam as the chair of the steering committee for 2023.

Jan is a cognitive Psychologist and PhD fellow at the IT university Copenhagen, Denmark. He joined the ReproducibiliTea Steering Committee in 2021.

And, give a warm ‘welcome back’ to our returning members:

Sophia Crüwell @cruwelli

Sophia is a PhD student in Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge, working on conceptual issues of the replication crisis and also working on empirical metaresearch projects with the QUEST Center in Berlin.

He does a bunch of the technical stuff for the core ReproducibiliTea organisation.

The coming year

We have a lot of exciting things planned for next year.

Like last year, we will also reflect on our recruiting process. We will add that soon. In the mean time, we are always looking for ideas. If you yourself want to get involved, have a cool idea you think we could tackle, or have some critique for us, please get in touch

In conclusion: A new year, a new steering committee and a lot of things to do.

We are looking forward to it.
