Italian Reproducibility Network

The first "ReproCoffee" has been held on June 15th, 3:30 pm (CEST), online, and "A manifesto for reproducible science" by Munafò et al., 2017 has been discussed.

A remote educational course open to everyone, focused on Master and PhD Students covering open science topics and practices.

We ask you for a few minutes of your time to answer some questions about the use of Open Research practices in your research. This is the link to participate: RN survey

Your responses will provide a provisional benchmark of where we are, and data will be used to shape future ITRN initiatives around Open Research.Thank you for your valuable contribution! This is an international initiative, which will be pursued by the other Reproducibility Networks as well. The original survey, developed by E. Norris et al., has been modified by M. Montefinese and made available under the CC BY-NC 4.0 license.

SIPF-ITRN Award: during the 2022 congress of the Italian Society of Psychophysiology, the SIPF-ITRN award will be granted to the best scientific articles, published in 2021-2022, that have followed the FAIR data management and scientific transparency principles. See more details at this link


The Italian Reproducibility Network (ITRN) is a peer-led consortium that aims to investigate the factors that contribute to robust research and disseminate them within the Italian scientific community. This is achieved by promoting initiatives and offering a hub for scientists to get in touch, exchange ideas and good practices, and promote collective learning. ITRN seeks collaboration with scientists in several disciplines, technical experts in relevant fields and stakeholders, so as to connect the widest possible spectrum of skills and knowledge.

Similarly to the other Reproducibility Networks in the world, ITRN investigates the factors that contribute to poor research reproducibility and replicability, and try to develop virtuous approaches to counter these factors and improve the quality of research. It also promotes collaboration among scientists and experts across a broad array of disciplines.
