WHO WE ARE FOR AND WHAT WE ARE ABOUT

The Society for Transparency, Openness, and Replication in Kinesiology (STORK) provides a platform for kinesiologists, movement scientists, sport and exercise scientists, physical activity and health scientists to come together to improve methods and practices within our respective disciplines.

OUR MISSION

QUALITY OVER QUANTITY

We encourage researchers within kinesiology to prioritize research quality over publication quantity. We believe in providing education to empower researchers at all levels to adopt more rigorous research practices. As part of this initiative, we will deliver workshops to help researchers identify questionable research practices within the context of an incentivized publishing system, and to explain the potential solutions.

BRIDGE THE DIVIDE

We will encourage more contact between researchers and practitioners by creating a forum for interested parties on both sides to communicate. Further, we aim to hold meetings and workshops around the world that are free for STORK members, sharing our results in an inclusive and cost-effective way.

TRANSPARENCY

We aim to increase transparency within this field by encouraging and supporting the open sharing of code, data, materials and working documents (i.e., preprints). Progress towards this goal has been made via our partnership with the Open Science Framework, and the introduction of SportRxiv: The Open Access Subject Repository for Sport, Exercise, Performance and Health Research. Although the infrastructure is in place, we aim to increase adoption rates by establishing a welcoming community of kinesiology researchers.

ENCOURAGE META-SCIENCE

We encourage metascience and critical evaluations of research practices within kinesiology. Science is only self-correcting when scientists are able to critically evaluate the way research is conducted. At STORK, we believe that the quality of research can be improved by scrutinizing current practices to help inform future advancements within the field.
