Take This Job and Pre-Register It

April 19, 2017

Going on the job market is stressful already. If you've been embracing open science practices in your work, how should you convey that? And will you be embraced as forward-thinking or dismissed as a destructo-warrior? Also: This is the first episode we've recorded since we launched and we talk about how it feels weird. And two, count 'em, TWO letters today: The perils of trying to seem knowledgeable and admitting what you don't know; and should you accept a review request for someone you know is a serial sexual harasser?

Discussed in this episode:
