About the Michael Haney Distinguished Lecture Series 

The Department of Psychological Sciences is honored to host the annual Michael Haney Distinguished Lecture Series. The lecture series is an endowed event made possible through the generous contributions of the late Kevin Cadden and Kim Nelson. Michael Haney was a member of the psychology faculty at USD for three decades, from 1973 until his untimely death in the spring of 2004. Professor Haney was known as a gentle,congenial colleague and a kind, generous mentor. He was well-loved as a colleague, not only within his department, but across the campus.

Improving transparency and reproducibility of research

Brian Nosek, PhD is this year's distinguished lecturer. Dr. Nosek is a professor at University of Virginia and director of the Center for Open Science. Dr. Nosek's Lecture Improving transparency and reproducibility of research: Shifting incentives from getting it published to getting it right will focus on improving openness, rigor, and reproducibility in research. The challenge of reproducibilty is less a technical challenge and more a social challenge. Current practice is sustained by dysfunctional incentives that prioritizes publication over accuracy and privacy over transparency. The consequence is unnecessary inefficiency in research progress. Successful culture change requires coordinated policy, incentive, and normative changes across stakeholders to improve research credibility and accelerate progress. Some stakeholder groups and disciplines are making more progress than others. We can change the system, but if we do not act collectively we will fail. Let’s not fail.
