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, there will be lots of time for questions and discussion.

Anyone doing research, but the examples will be drawn from social science.
Lecture and discussion.
