Description
If you want to increase the quality and impact of your work, you should consider doing open and reproducible research. In this workshop, I will begin by providing a working definition for what it means for your research to be open and reproducible. Then, I will describe the ways that you can overcome the obstacles that may be preventing you from being open and reproducible. The workshop will be illustrated by some of my own struggles with these issues during my career. Because there are many complicated technical, legal, professional, and ethical issues involved, we will have a team of experts on hand to help answer your questions, and we will leave lots of time for discussion.
