Promoting Reproducibility and Transparency in Scientific Research


This is a free workshop on Wednesday, Sept. 28th from 12:30-3:30 pm, participation is limited to the first 30 registrants.

This workshop is a hands-on introduction to reproducibility in scientific research. The normative research practices that act as barriers to reproducibility will be explored alongside practical solutions for promoting reproducible and transparent research methods. Participants will engage with the entire research workflow by managing an example study from plan to publication using the Open Science Framework. Incentives for promoting best practices for reproducibility throughout the research lifecycle will be discussed. Participants will learn to define reproducibility, to plan for reproducible research projects, to discuss the value of power, preregistration, and documentation with researchers, and to promote sharing of scientific research at their home institution.

Speaker: April Clyburne-Sherin, Center for Open Science
