Workshop - Increasing Openness and Reproducibility in Quantitative Research

Thursday, April 21, 2016 - 9:00am

There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a workshop, hosted by the University of Arizona Libraries and the Center for Open Science, to learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work. The workshop will be hands-on. Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish.

Topics covered:

  • Project documentation
  • Version control
  • Pre-Analysis plans
  • Open source tools like the Center for Open Science's Open Science Framework to easily implement these concepts in a scientific workflow.

This workshop is aimed at researchers and graduate students across disciplines, who are engaged in quantitative research. The workshop does not require any specialized knowledge of programming. Participants will gain a foundation for incorporating reproducible, transparent practices into their current workflows.

Speaker is April Clyburne-Sherin. April is the Reproducible Research Evangelist at the Center for Open Science and co-heads their training programs for reproducible research methods. She has an MS in Epidemiology from the University of Guelph.
