UC Libraries to Present Workshop on Research Practices

Workshop Announcement:

On March 11 and 12, UC Libraries will sponsor the Center of Open Science for a workshop on reproducible research practices.

This workshop is free for attendees.  There are two opportunities to attend, with same content offered at each session.  Please register by Monday, March 2 at  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/UCCenterOpenScience

  • Wednesday, March 11, 1:00 – 4:00 pm, East Campus (Health Sciences Library, MSB G005G Electronic Classroom)
  • Thursday, March 12, 1:00 – 4:00 pm, West Campus (Langsam Library 480)

The Center for Open Science (COS), http://centerforopenscience.org, is a non-for-profit technology organization whose mission is to increase openness, integrity, and reproducibility of scientific research.  This workshop would benefit all data generators, but especially graduate students and junior faculty.  This 3-hour workshop will focus on factors that contribute to low levels of reproducibility, and simple, practical steps researchers can easily take to increase the reproducibility of their work.  Participants will be introduced to open source tools such as the Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework and the analysis software R.  In addition, participants will learn about proper research documentation, data sharing resources and the choices involved in tracking data.  The format will mix lecture and hands-on activities, so that participants will engage in creating a reproducible project from beginning to end.  Putting these tools in to practice will ensure that UC researchers are prepared for changing incentives and mandates from funders and journals for transparent and open research.
