Objective:  Research on Open Science practices in Health  Psychology is lacking. This meta-research study aimed to identify  research question priorities and obtain consensus on the Top 5  prioritised research questions for Open Science in Health  Psychology. Methods and measures: An international Delphi consensus study  was conducted. Twenty-three experts in Open Science and Health  Psychology within the European Health Psychology Society (EHPS)  suggested research question priorities to create a ‘long-list’ of  items (Phase 1). Forty-three EHPS members rated the importance  of these items, ranked their top five and suggested their own  additional items (Phase 2). Twenty-four EHPS members received  feedback on Phase 2 responses and then re-rated and re-ranked  their top five research questions (Phase 3). Results:  The top five ranked research question priorities were: 1.  ‘To what extent are Open Science behaviours currently practised  in Health Psychology?’, 2. ‘How can we maximise the usefulness  of Open Data and Open Code resources?’, 3. ‘How can Open Data  be increased within Health Psychology?’, 4. ‘What interventions  are effective for increasing the adoption of Open Science in Health  Psychology?’ and 5. ‘How can we increase free Open Access publishing in Health Psychology?’. Conclusion:  Funding and resources should prioritise the research  questions identified here.
