Teaching Open and Reproducible Scholarship: A Critical Review of the Evidence Base for Current Pedagogical Methods and Their Outcomes

Our recent review found that the scientific community's call for credible, robust, and reproducible research practices has not been adequately incorporated into undergraduate and postgraduate training. Our research suggests that embedding these practices can enhance students' understanding of open research, encourage scientific literacy, boost engagement, and foster positive attitudes toward science. We also identify a need for stronger methodologies in pedagogical research, including experimental evaluations of teaching practice.
