Reproducibility workshop at #UCDavis May 4

Workshop for increasing openness and reproducibility in

quantitative research

There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a workshop, hosted by theCenterforOpenScience, 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’sOpenScienceFramework to easily implement these concepts in a scientific workflow. You can think of OSF as an electronic notebook.

This workshop is aimed at faculty, staff, and 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.

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

Date: Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Time: Two Sessions (9am-12pm; or 1pm-4pm)

Location: Shields Library, DSI Classroom, room 360

Pizza lunch will be provided at noon for attendees from both sessions.

Please RVSP by April 8th as space is limited.
