Workshop for Increasing Openness and Reproducibility in
Quantitative Research

Friday, February 19, 2016
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM


There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a workshop, hosted by the Center for Open Science, to learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work. The workshop will be hands-on. Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish.

Topics covered:

  • Project documentation
  • Version control
  • Pre-Analysis plans
  • Open source tools like the Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework to easily implement these concepts in a scientific workflow.

The workshop does not require any specialized knowledge of programming. Participants will gain a foundation for incorporating reproducible, transparent practices into their current workflows.

Speaker: Courtney Soderberg, PhD

Courtney is the Statistical and Methodological Consultant at the Center for Open Science and heads up their training programs for reproducible research methods. She has a Ph.D. in Experimental Social Psychology with a minor in Quantitative Psychology from UC Davis.


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