Co-creating a FORRT: The Framework for Open and Reproducible Research Training

Flavio Azevedo shares with Jo about his work with the FORRT community, which focuses on open scholarship, diversity, equity, and inclusion. The members in the FORRT community have developed several initiatives, including a glossary of open scholarship terms, lesson plans, and a project on replications and reversals. They also have a team advocating for neurodiversity and its connection to open scholarship. You are welcome to join FORRT and engage in any of their projects.
