The Quest for Reproducible Science: Issues in Research Transparency and Integrity
a 2016 ALCTS Preconference
Friday, June 24, 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. | event code: ALC3 | Register
The credibility of scientific findings is under attack. While this crisis has several causes, none is more common or correctable than the inability to replicate experimental and computational research. This preconference will feature scholars, librarians, and technologists who are attacking this problem through tools and techniques to manage data, enable research transparency, and promote reproducible science. Attendees will learn strategies for fostering and supporting transparent research practices at their institutions.
- Participants will learn tools and techniques that can be immediately employed at their institution to foster and support a culture of transparent research practices.
- Participants will know how to develop a research project on an open platform to manage data and other digital objects throughout the research lifecycle.
- Participants will have access to techniques for organizing empirical research projects in such a way that they can be easily and exactly reproduced.
