Chinese Open Science Network


Chinese Open Science Network (COSN), a grass-root network for promoting open science practices and awareness of reproducibility in the Chinese-speaking community. COSN is one of the Community of Open Scholarship Grassroots Networks that aimed at promoting open science and changing the research culture globally. COSN is run by Early Career Researchers (ECRs) and for ECRs, especially for the next generation researchers.

GENG, Haiyang

Post-doc, The University of Hong Kong, China

Dr. Haiyang Geng is a postdoc researcher in Dr. Xiaoqing Hu's lab at The University of Hong Kong. His current research focuses on memory, decision and psychopathology (i.e. anxiety, depression and schizophrenia) by using computational modeling and advanced neuroimaging approaches. In 2012, Haiyang Geng obtained his bachelor degree in bioinformatics at Harbin Medical University. After that, tremendous interest and curiosity drive him to enter the field of cognitive neuroscience. During his master, he worked with Dr. Xuebing Li in the Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Science on the topic of exploring neural mechanisms of anxiety. In 2015, he got his master degree in cognitive neuroscience. During 2015-2016, he worked with Dr. Shaozheng Qin at Beijing Normal University on modulation of stress, anxiety on working memory. During 2016-2020, he joined the Ph.D. program at the University of Groningen. During his Ph.D., Haiyang was supervised by prof. André Aleman and prof. Yue-Jia Luo. His Ph.D. research is to examine how disrupted prediction processes may contribute to a variety of psychiatric symptoms (i.e. anxiety, hallucination and apathy) by using multiple neuroimaging approaches including brain activation, connectivity (i.e. psychophysiological interaction (PPI)) and dynamic functional connectivity (i.e. sliding window, K-means and phase synchronization), graph theory (i.e. modularity analysis).

HU, Chuan-Peng

Professor, Nanjing Normal University, China

Dr. Hu Chuan-Peng is currently a faculty member of the School of Psychology, Nanjing Normal University. In 2017, Chuan-Peng received his PhD degree in Psychology at the Department of Psychology, Tsinghua University. After that, he worked as a post-doc at the Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research (LIR). He started his journey in open science and metascience after two failed replications of published papers during his master and PhD training. He became an ambassador of the Center for Open Science since 2016. Now, Chuan-Peng's research interests include metascience and Bayesian modelling in social cognition.

JIN, Haiyang

Postdoctoral associate, New York University Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Dr. Haiyang Jin is a postdoctoral associate in Dr. Olivia Cheung's lab at the New York University Abu Dhabi. He obtained his Ph.D. in psychology at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, under the supervision of Prof. William G. Hayward, Assoc/Prof. Paul M. Corballis, and Assoc/Prof. Sam Schwarzkopf. He is interested in understanding face perception, holistic face processing, and vision sciences using psychophysics, EEG/ERP, fMRI, and eye-tracking. He is also a big fan of statistics, e.g., (generalized) linear mixed-effects modeling, Bayesian hierarchical modeling, and the "new statistics". Personal website:

JIN, Shuxian

PhD Candidate, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Shuxian Jin is a Ph.D. candidate in social psychology at the Department of Experimental and Applied Psychology, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Her research interest focuses on situational influences on human cooperation and interdependence. She applies meta-analysis, survey and field study to understand (a) how structural features affect cooperation in social dilemmas, (b) conflicts of interest and the psychology of cooperation, and (c) daily interdependence and cooperation in different ecologies. During her Ph.D., she co-developed the Cooperation Databank (CoDa) - A machine-readable history of cooperation research to search and select studies for on-demand meta-analysis ( She is currently involved in the creation of a meta-analysis database of leadership studies.
