Alex Holcombe

A professor of psychology at the University of Sydney, in his laboratory Alex investigates visual perception and cognition. Outside the lab, for fifteen years Alex has worked on open access, research transparency, and improving reproducibility in academic roles with organizations such as PLoS and the Association for Psychological Science.
Together with colleagues, Alex has developed tenzing to make it easier for authors to indicate who did what on their research projects. In particular, tenzing formats the information that authors need to include in their manuscript when submitting to journals that use the CRediT standard.

Increased reporting of who did what in journal articles will result in improved allocation of resources to appropriate teams of researchers, as well as better recognition of the diversity of people who contribute to research.
