A podcast about the methods and metascience of developmental science, cohosted by Jessica Logan @jarlogan and Sara Hart @saraannhart. We talk about developmental sciencing, including data collection, data analysis, research methods, and open science, as well as life in academia. Think about it like a lab meeting where you don’t have to do the readings and never have to present. ​

    S3E4: You are the search committee

    S3E4: You are the search committee

    In this episode, Jess and Sara talk about what it’s like to serve on an academic search committee. To those of you who are about to serve on a committee (maybe for the first time), we will take you through the whole process from writing the call to making the offer. Or those of you on the market this year, peek behind the curtain.

    Every search is different! Things happen very differently from university to university, and even from search to search. We want this overview to give you, the search committee member, the permission to speak up and suggest changes from the way it may have been done before.

    S3E3: All about that LDBase

    S3E3: All about that LDBase

    In this episode, Jess asks Sara to talk about LDBase, the data repository she has been building designed specifically to hold developmental science data. We discuss what LDbase is, what motivated her and her colleagues to start building it, what makes it unique, and how it works. Sara even describes several excellent resources you can find on the website that make data sharing easier.

    S3E2: What’s up with Els*vier?

    S3E2: What’s up with Els*vier?

    You may have noticed that the cycle of academic publishing is pretty broken. Scientists give their research papers to academic journals for free, then the journal puts that work behind a paywall. Sometimes institutions will pay for a package of subscriptions to these journals, often costing millions of dollars. Jess and Sara talk about this cycle, and how institutions, journals, and individuals have started to push back against it.

    S3E1: Methodologists? What are those?

    S3E1: Methodologists? What are those?

    In this episode Jess and Sara talk about the role of methodologist in developmental science, and how it’s different from a statistician. A methodologist is a content expert and a collaborator like any other, and we do our best work when we’re involved right from the initial planning stages of a project. Why? Because nearly every decision made in a research project can have implications for statistical conclusions, and methodologists are the collaborators who keep this in mind. Think you might be interested in being a methodologist? Jess and Sara give some suggestions on how to prepare and frame your materials.

    Season ALMOST 3 : Burnout.

    Season ALMOST 3 : Burnout.

    Well the spring 2021 semester is over, and - what is this feeling? We’re a little (a lot) overwhelmed. Jess and Sara describe their experiences, and theorize a bit about why it might be particularly bad right now. Is the pandemic over here in the US? What does that mean for our jobs? That feeling of one day more can sometimes be too much. We end by suggesting, maybe, we all need a break, and to give ourselves, and our colleagues, some grace.

    S2E14: Data Management Episode 2

    S2E14: Data Management Episode 2

    The saga continues. In this episode we talk about the data management steps you’ll need to consider after you’ve collected your data. We talk a lot about data entry, including the science of how to do it well. We also discuss data merging, data cleaning, and the concept of “release” datasets. Finally, because it seems no episode is complete without Sara discovering something to be shocked about regarding Jess’s approach to science, we talk about the importance of backing up your data.

    Resources:

    Recent working group on data management led by Tara Reynolds and Chris:

    Paper about data entry methods is new in 2020, and cites a whole (fascinating!) history of similar work:

SAiL Lit Lab ,

Pure awesomeness

Great content for anyone interested in development, the scientific process, &/or academia!

ECE PhD student ,

Great for graduate students!

Thank you! I learned of this podcast from the POWER Consortium. I have learned so much about the hidden curriculum of academia, even beyond what was taught in my professional seminar course.

Mahaff_e ,

Absolutely love!!

Drs Logan and Hart do such a lovely job discussing developmental metascience in a way that is accessible, entertaining, and informative. As a junior researcher in the field, I really enjoy listening to them talk about various aspects of science and research. Listening makes me feel like I really do belong in academia. Thanks for making this podcast!!
