Transparency and reproducibility are two core values of scientific research. However, scientists often do not have the practical tools or training that will help them integrate these practices into their workflow in an efficient and effective manner. This workshop will give an overview of current obstacles to openness, transparency, and reproducibility in scientific research and discuss how these obstacles have undermined the ability of scientists to accumulate knowledge in an efficient manner. We will then introduce and demo the tools, DataONE project, the Open Science Framework, and the DMPTool; all of which can help researchers increase the documentation of their workflow, easily make their work publicly accessible, and increase the reproducibility of their work.


Scholarships are available if the $25 fee presents any obstacles for attendance. Please email contact@cos.io for more information about scholarships.

Registration Fee: $25
