At the IBT, we embrace a culture of transparency and reproducibility that is reflected in our teaching and research.
To increase the reusability of our work, we publish the syntax, materials and datasets alongside our manuscripts. This is especially important for publications that entail some development of new approaches to process, analyze, or visualize different forms of data and confirmatory analyses. Additionally, we pre-register our hypotheses to improve the reliability of our work.
