Considering that I focus on psycholinguistics, I have encountered the issue of the replication crisis in psychology and open science as a way to overcome this crisis. In addition, I began to realize how horrible it is that so much data is lost over time or simply not available – due to the verifiability of previous conclusions and because that data could be useful for other purposes.
As for my own research, I primarily publish collected data and various other materials.
The traceability of published results, opportunities for meta-analyses, the acceleration of scientific progress...
I think it can be difficult to convince someone, but if they are willing, it’s pretty easy these days (it just takes some extra time). :)
Mainly, the well-known notion of some people who think that the data they collect while working in an academic institution are their private property.
Open science is a way to move scientific knowledge forward at a faster pace.
