This page will collect links and resources related to open-source tutorials in psychology. It’s obviously nowhere near a complete list, but aims to highlight some of the tutorials that inspire our group. We will continue to update it as we hear about more great tutorials.

Curation sites

Curation sites are where authors or groups can repost content written by others. For example, creating a collection of tutorials or linking to tutorials to reach wider audiences.

  • Framework for Open and Reproducible Research Training (FORRT)
    FORRT aim to improve teaching and mentoring practices in Higher Education. They include pages which organise tutorials into topics.

  • Open Scholarship Knowledge Base
    OSKB curates a collection of resources that support open scholarship for researchers and educators. Resources include training materials for early career researchers and tutorials for applying statistical techniques for reproducible science.

  • Rushworth, A. Posts you might have missed!
    Daily reposts of tutorials written for R and Python. They take tutorials other users have written and write short summaries of what they contain.

  • UK Reproducibility Network. Reproducibility Resources
    The UKRN’s Resources page curates action plans and primers to guide research organisations and researchers in implementing best practices for open and reproducible science.

  • McIntyre, K. P. (2021). Open Stats Lab
    This site curates lab activities for statistical methods at the undergraduate level. Each activity focuses on a published paper with its data and code.

Tutorial papers

Tutorial papers are where authors provide a step-by-step guide on the process and decision making involved in a task. Tutorials that are accompanied by code and data examples must find effective ways to make those resources open, findable, and accessible. We have collated these resources to demonstrate tutorials aimed at beginner, intermediate, and advanced users.
