What this project is about

This project is part of SFB 1287, Limits of variability in language. The principal investigators are Shravan Vasishth and Ralf Engbert. This project will provide support to the CRC by (a) advising other projects on experiment design, (b) helping projects to preregister their primary statistical analyses using the Open Science Foundation (, (c) providing training in carrying out these analyses, and (d) helping with the post-publication data management and archiving for use in the public domain. This will be achieved through four work packages that (1) provide support to the CRC for optimising experiment design and analysis, (2) provide statistical education within the CRC, (3) assist in developing and maintaining a data repository to ensure preregistration, open access of data and code, and reproducibility, and (4) develop new statistical methods and computational tools, and software packages needed for the CRC, which will be available in the public domain.

Ticketing system for statistical consulting (this is only for SFB members)
Coming soon.
