Trust is a beautiful thing.
But you shouldn’t need it to evaluate the quality of science.

IGDORE is an independent research institute dedicated to transparency and open scientific practices. IGDORE’s main mission is to protect whistleblowers in science and to educate and train affiliated and external scientists and students on best scientific practices.

Scientists who adhere to open scientific practices can become affiliated with IGDORE. We currently have 10 affiliated scientists conducting their own research, currently spanning 7 scientific disciplines (metascience, medicine, computer science, physics, law, psychology, chemistry). Our location independence allow affiliated scientists to reside anywhere in the world; we currently have scientists residing in no less than 8 countries (Canada, Finland, India, Indonesia, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States, Belgium).

IGDORE has an international team of experienced research assistants who can be hired on an hourly or project basis in internal and external projects. This team offers virtual scientific openness support to experienced and novice employers of open scientific practices. The team can also be hired to collect and prepare scientific data in Sweden (including assistance with ethical review); in 2019, this will also be possible in Indonesia.

In 2017 we opened our first coworking space, located in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. This coworking space is specifically developed to cater the needs of scientists and students, but everyone is warmly welcome to enjoy the place. The coworking space is open all year round and is a great place for anyone interested in personal or organised science retreats, for example to get started with open scientific practices. The location and setting is very family friendly.

Founder, Director & Board Member: Dr. Rebecca Willén
