Workshop: Pre-registration for qualitative research

Door: Daan Rutten | Categorie: open science, publishing, training

Dr. Leonie van Grootel (TSB) will give a workshop on pre-registration for qualitative research on November 6, 2019. This workshop is organized by the Tilburg Open Science Community and LIS Research Support.

Pre-registration is an open science practice to avoid p-hacking and other questionable research practices. The method is more common within fields of quantitative studies. This workshop investigates whether the pre-registration format could also be used to boost the credibility of qualitative research, for instance in the fields of Humanities and Law.

Some may object to the idea of pre-registering qualitative studies because qualitative research generally does not test hypotheses, and because qualitative research design is typically flexible and subjective. Van Grootel rebuts these objections, arguing that making hypotheses explicit is just one feature of pre-registration, that flexibility can be tracked using pre-registration and that pre-registration would provide a check on subjectivity.

Researchers of Tilburg University (in any stage of their career) are welcome to register and attend. It promises to be extra interesting for scholars in Law, Communication & Culture Studies, Philosophy and Cultural Sociology.
