Center for Open Science: Practical Steps​​ for​​ Increasing​​ Openness​ ​ and Reproducibility

An​ ​Introduction​ to​ ​the​​ OSF


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​​​ 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.

Date:​ ​ Wednesday,​ ​ October​ ​ 18th,​ ​ 2017

Time:​ ​ 9:00am​ ​ - ​ ​ 12:00pm

Location:​​ ​ Powell​ ​ Library,​ ​ CLICC Classroom​ ​ C

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​​ graduate​​ students,​​ postdocs,​​ and​​ faculty​​ 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.

Attendees​ ​ will​​ need​​ to​​ bring​​ their​​ own​​ laptop​​ in​​ order​​ to​​ fully​​ participate.​ ​ ​
