Reproducible research through open science

1:00pm-2:00pm, Mar 12, 2019

Room 319, 2176 Health Sciences Mall
Presenter: 
Dr. Jason Pither, UBC Open Science

In 5 years, do you think you’d be able to revisit your current research project and replicate it in its entirety?  What about those inspiring peer-reviewed studies that helped you formulate your research hypotheses: do you think they could be replicated fully, given the resources?  Without hesitation, as scientists we should be able to respond “yes” to both these questions. The reality is often different: irreproducible research pervades many science disciplines, despite best intentions. The current “Open Science” movement aims to fix this problem. This seminar provides an overview of (i) the common pitfalls that reduce reproducibility; (ii) how we can achieve more reproducible research through more transparent and open workflows, and (iii) tools and resources that facilitate the practice of Open Science, including the web-based Open Science Framework.
