About this event

Mistakes are a routine part of the scientific process, and yet we rarely talk about them openly. Imagine you published a paper only to realize that the central conclusion was wrong because of a mistake you made. How would you deal with that? And, if you spoke about it openly, how would the scientific community react?

In this lecture, Dr. Julia M. Rohrer will talk about the Loss-of-Confidence Project in which a group of psychological researchers publicly owned their mistakes. You will hear from researchers who made a mess and made amends, and learn more about why retractions should become normalized.

About the speaker:

Dr. Julia M. Rohrer is a personality psychologist by training and her work covers a broad range of topics, including the effects of birth order, age patterns in personality, and the correlates and determinants of subjective well-being. Her methodological interests include causal inference on the basis of observational data and data analytic flexibility. She is an active advocate for increased research transparency and has frequently given talks on the topic.

Julia recently finished her doctoral degree as a fellow of the International Max Planck Research School on the Life Course and is now a lecturer (Akademische Assistentin) at the Department of Psychology, University of Leipzig.
