Center for Open Science

Dr. Brian Nosek

Dr. Brian Nosek is co-Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Open Science that operates the Open Science Framework. COS is enabling open and reproducible research practices worldwide. Dr. Nosek is also a Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia. He received his Ph.D. from Yale University in 2002.


Dr. Nosek co-founded Project Implicit, a multi-university collaboration for research and education investigating implicit cognition—thoughts and feelings that occur outside of awareness or control. He investigates the gap between values and practices, such as when behavior is influenced by factors other than one's intentions and goals. Research applications of this interest include implicit bias, decision-making, attitudes, ideology, morality, innovation, barriers to change, open science, and reproducibility.


In 2015, Dr. Nosek was named one of Nature's 10 and to the Chronicle for Higher Education Influence list.
