Different from previous editions of the tournament, the Munich Research Open 2019 also represented the platform for a scientific study conducted by researchers from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. Right before and right after each round, the scientists would distribute surveys with factual questions related to the motion to debaters and would ask judges to fill in a second ballot assessing the overall persuasiveness of each speaker (including style). Once first results are available, the researchers announced they would distribute them via the convenor to the participants.
