To help meet METRICS’ goal of establishing meta-research as a new field of study and to improve how researchers conduct, report and disseminate their findings, we support a variety of education and training opportunities. Through the development of curricula to be delivered in the classroom and online, METRICS intends to produce a new generation of scholars focused on transforming research practices and improving the quality of scientific studies.


Whether taking a course on Stanford’s campus or online, researchers can strengthen their knowledge and skills in the areas of research best practices, reporting and dissemination. This page provides a list of recommended offerings from leading institutions around the world. All highlighted online courses can be taken free of charge.


METRICS will offer a limited number of research fellowships for doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars to help advance the Center’s research agenda. A postdoctoral fellowship with METRICS offers a unique opportunity to be part of a highly innovative and creative research environment while also advancing best research practices..


Video modules serve as an educational tool to enhance best practices in conducting rigorous and reproducible research. Here we feature modules aimed at scholars at all stages of their careers and others involved in the research enterprise. Video modules are meant to compliment further training and education provided by leading research institutions.
