Advanced Methods for Reproducible Science Course 2017
13 April 2017
In April 2017 the University of Bristol jointly organised the Reproducibility 2017 course, intended to provide early-career researchers with a range of skills that would serve to improve the quality and reproducibility of their work.
In early April we ran Reproducibility 2017, a five-day course intended to provide early-career researchers with a range of skills that would serve to improve the quality and reproducibility of their work. Attendees from across Europe made their way to the beautiful grounds of Cumberland Lodge in Great Windsor Park to take part in what attendees described as an incredible and informative course.
The course was intended to raise awareness of the problem of low reproducibility across many scientific disciplines, and various methods that can be used to address this problem. Workshops were led by researchers from academic, industry and other areas (e.g., scientific publishing). The course was supported by a grant from the BBSRC to Professor Marcus Munafo from the School of Experimental Psychology, with additional support from the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology.
The course was organised by the University of Bristol, jointly with Professor Dorothy Bishop at the University of Oxford and Professor Chris Chambers at Cardiff University.
