Summary of the lecture: This seminar/workshop provides a primer on “Responsible Science” – resting on the three core pillars of (a) credible research; (b) relevant research; & (c) independent research. We encounter a range of issues including “questionable research practices”; research “crisis”; and the importance of reproducibility and replication. Embracing “Open Science” practices is proposed as one important avenue for leading us toward the ideal of being responsible scientists.
