Increasing Openness and Reproducibility in Quantitative Research

A Workshop by the Center for Open Science
Tuesday, May 3, 2016 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

PLEASE NOTE VENUE CHANGE: The workshop will be held in the Main Conference Room (not the WEC) in the Research Library. Signs will be posted to direct attendees.

There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a workshop, hosted by UCLA Library and conducted 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.

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.

The workshop is open to all researchers (staff, librarians, faculty, students and postdocs) from every discipline, 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: April Clyburne-Sherin

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

Attendees will need to bring their own laptop in order to fully participate. A limited number of laptops will be on hand for those who cannot bring one. To place your name on the list, please contact the organizer.

Coffee and light refreshments will be served.

Please RVSP as space is limited.
