RESCHEDULED: Practical Steps for Increasing Openness and Reproducibility

  • October 30, 2019 • 9 AM – 4 PM
  • Olin Library, Instruction Rm. 3

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop has been rescheduled to January 2020. More details will be posted here as soon as they are available. We apologize for any inconvenience!


There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a day-long workshop, led by Ian Sullivan from the Center for Open Science, to learn easy, practical steps to increase the reproducibility of your work.

In the afternoon session participants will build on the knowledge gained in the morning session by examine case studies and designing appropriate open workflows for each situation.

  • 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

October 29 (Medical Campus):  9am-12pm  – Morning Register

October 30 (Danforth Campus):  9am-12pm – Register

  • Build structures to support complex workflows
  • Tie projects together across studies and teams
