In the cognitive sciences, experimentation, analysis, and dissemination are becoming cheaper, easier, and more open. Researchers can produce results more accurately, reproducibly, and collaboratively.

These articles range across the cognitive sciences, and over a suite of techniques that are coming to be known as Science 2.0.



Mark Tovey did his Ph.D. in Cognitive Science at the Advanced Cognitive Engineering Lab at Carleton University in Ottawa.

He is a Fellow at the Balsillie School of International Affairs (BSIA), and an Affiliate Researcher with the Waterloo Institute for Complexity and Innovation (WICI).
