Countway Library Open Access Week Program Workshop

Sponsored by Countway Library, Office for Postdoctoral Fellows

The recent attention to the challenges of reproducibility is new, but the problem itself is as old as science. Fortunately, over the past decade, a range of tools and resources have been created to help scientists communicate more easily and clearly, helping to make our work easier to build on, for ourselves and other researchers.

This workshop will highlight some of the resources available to help share code, data, reagents, and methods. We will discuss a variety of reproducibility tools and then practice during a hands-on section creating reproducible project methods. 

Workshop goals:

  • Understand how sharing and detailing research methods can increase visibility to and extend the distribution of your research
  • Gain insight into best practices for computational and empirical reproducibility and how they can save you time
  • Explore a range of tools that can help in the practice of sharing and extending research including Addgene, bio-protocol, Code Ocean, Dryad, figshare, ICLAC, Jupyter Notebooks,, and RRID with practical demonstrations

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