SDS: Preprints in Conversation
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance and impact of preprint servers like never before. But are these tools right for you? What do preprints mean for exposure? Trainees? Research quality?
Join us on Tuesday, July 21 at 1 PM EDT for a seminar with our own Joel Boerckel, Ph.D.: “Preprints in Conversation: An Argument for Preprint Adoption by Researchers in the IRM.” Joel will be discussing his personal experience with preprints and sharing why he thinks this tool is ripe for widespread use. Come learn more about this science communication strategy and discuss the state of preprints in 2020, whether you have used them or not.
Hope to see you there!

Science & Bias: Adam Benforado
Oct 15 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

Illuminating the Law: How Science Can Help Us Identify and Address Bias in the Criminal Justice System

Adam Benforado’s principal interest is in applying insights from the mind sciences—most notably cognitive psychology—to law and legal theory. Collaborating with psychologists on novel experiments, Professor Benforado is focused on developing a more realistic understanding of the behavior of legal actors.

Join us for this Special Seminar to discuss how bias influences the criminal justice system in the United States and how these insights can inform our practice of science.
