Abstract / Description

In the course of the Open Science Movement and the replication crisis in psychology, as well as other disciplines, sharing research data openly has become increasingly important. However, a lack of concrete and easy-to-use standards for documenting research data in a reusable way avoids that data sharing becomes common practice in psychology. To counteract this problem, the BMBF-funded project PsyCuraDat aims at the development of a user-friendly curation standard enabling the data's long term interpretability and reusability (Blask, Gerhards, & Jalynskij, 2021). The present study is targeted at providing an empirical test of the user-friendliness of the data documentation standard developed within the project PsyCuraDat. N = 52 master psychology students will be recruited via the panel administered by the department for study planning, data collection, and data analysis services at the Leibniz-Institute for Psychology. Additionally, the research assistants employed in the PsyCuraDat project (both are master psychology students) as well as three to four of their fellow students will participate in a pilot test. Participants will be randomly assigned to a 2 (use: documentation vs. reuse) x 2(standard: yes vs. no) between-subjects design.
