Open Science and Confetti Rain

Open Science plays an increasingly important role in sport psychology - yet we still reveal a clear intention-behavior gap* in the implementation of Open Science (in research, supervision and teaching). The goals of the workshop are (1) to understand the intention behind Open Science and to get to know examples of possible steps of concrete implementation within the research process, (2) to understand the individual behavior of sport psychologists, especially of us postdocs: (3) to explain the discrepancy between intention and behavior about individual, group-specific and systemic hurdles for the implementation of Open Science, especially in the qualification phase, and to develop possible solutions for us to overcome them. The results of our reflections will be presented in a joint position paper for the 2023 thematic issue "Open Science in Sport Psychology" of the Journal of Sport Psychology.

Dr. Katharina Geukes

The workshop speaker Dr. Katharina Geukes completed her studies in psychology at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster in 2007 and completed her doctorate in 2012/13 within a joint PhD program at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and The University of Queensland (Australia) on the interface of sport and personality psychology. Since 2014, Katharina Geukes has been researching and teaching, now as an Akademische Oberrätin, in the Institute of Psychology at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster in the research group "Psychological Diagnostics and Personality Psychology". Her research deals with personality and sports psychology issues concerning processes that are subject to the consequences of interindividual differences "in real life". In doing so, she has gained extensive experience with open and transparent research, including supervision and teaching, at an early stage.
