Marton Kovacs is a Ph.D. student in the Metascience Lab at ELTE, Hungary. In his doctoral research, Marton mainly focuses on empirically assessing potential barriers to research efficiency at different stages of the research pipeline and developing tools to mitigate these issues. As a 2022 Fulbright scholar, he visited the Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS) lab of Stanford University.
Marton is the associate director of the Data and Methods Committee of the Psychological Science Accelerator, a global network of over 2000 psychological laboratories. Currently, Marton is working on STAPLE, a project management software for tracking research metadata, supported by a NASA ROSES grant.
He is the lead developer of tenzing (one of the subjects of the present project), a web app and open-source package that helps researchers document their contributorships according to the CRediT taxonomy.
Here are two of Marton's publications:
