We are pleased to announce the Special Issue “Reproducibility in sleep and circadian science”. The focus of this collection of articles is to bring open and reproducible science to the attention of sleep and circadian researchers.
This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for discussing open science and reproducibility—including its challenges—with a specific focus on circadian and sleep research.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Original research articles employing open and reproducible science principles, such as registered reports;
- Original meta-research articles on open and reproducible science practices in the field;
- Perspective pieces and opinions, as well as commentary and narratives;
- Articles describing software and resources to make research workflows reproducible;
We are also interested in allowing you to open your file drawer, i.e., well-designed and adequately powered but failed experiments or studies that you have not published, and failed replications.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
Prof. Dr. Manuel Spitschan
