Workshop: Open Science & Reproducible Research
Offered by the UBC Okanagan Library and the Department of Biology
A hands-on workshop covering issues of replicability in research and workflow management. Learn about increasing the efficiency and reproducibility of your work with the Open Science Framework, and prepare for the increasingly stringent demands for transparency and openness among funding agencies and publishers.
Reichwald Health Sciences, RHS 260
Thursday April 19, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
The workshop is free, but space is limited and registration is required!
The first part of this workshop will address key issues in reproducibility and the need for a coordinated effort to tackle these issues. We will cover concepts related to Open Science, highlight critical issues in the field of open and reproducible research, and address means of increasing transparency and workflow efficiency.
The second part will include a hands-on demonstration of one tool, the Open Science Framework (OSF), which can be used to increase both the efficiency of the research process and the reproducibility of our work. The OSF is an open source web application that supports the research workflow, facilitating collaboration and increasing research efficiency and effectiveness. It integrates existing tools and technologies, linking to multiple platforms, including Google Drive, Dataverse, GitHub, and Mendeley. It also supports pre-registration and pre-print portals.
