Reproducibility Events from Center for Open Science on Monday, Feb 9

Courtney Soderberg of the Center for Open Science will be visiting Rutgers on Monday, February 9th to present two workshops on techniques to enhance reproducibility and transparency in research.  See below details and registration.

Practical Steps for increasing openness and reproducibility in scientific research

Want to be ahead of the curve of changing incentives and mandates from funders and journals about transparent and open research? Join us for a workshop on reproducible research, hosted by the Center for Open Science (http://centerforopenscience.org). Learn about factors that contribute to low levels of reproducibility, and easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work. Using hands-on examples, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish, using open source tools like the Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework (https://osf.io/), and learn about ways to implement these new skills in their own projects.

Date: Monday, February 9th

Time: 9:30am – 11:30am

Location: Alexander Library, Room 413, 169 College Ave, New Brunswick

Using R to create reproducible code

Recently, there has been a growing call from journals and funders for scientists to make their research findings more reproducible. An important part of this is creating reproducible analysis scripts and papers. Join us for a workshop on reproducible coding, hosted by the Center for Open Science (http://centerforopenscience.org). This workshop will discuss how R can be used to meet these goals. The workshop will go over good coding practices as well teach the basics of tools like R Markdown and KnitR that can be used to create reproducible documents. Some background in R is suggested.

Date: Monday, February 9th

Time: 2pm – 3:30am

Location: Alexander Library, Room 413, 169 College Ave, New Brunswick
