In this workshop, delivered by Professor Chris Chambers, we will challenge the main problems we face in our quantitative research, or the so called 'seven deadly sins'. The author of The Seven Deadly Sins of Psychology: A Manifesto for Reforming the Culture of Scientific Practice, Chris will help you tackle each of them. After this workshop you will feel equipped to resist the multiple temptations to take shortcuts in your research and publishing.

Learning outcomes:

  • to understand how biased, non-transparent practices reduce the quality of research the range of measures that are available to address this problem
  • to become familiar with Registered Reports as a solution for researchers who wish to improve the reliability and transparency of their work.

Aimed at UWE Postgraduate Researchers and early career researchers – get into good habits early on!
