This workshop is the signature event of the UW eScience Special Interest Group on Reproducible Research and Open Source Software, co-sponsored by the UW Libraries. Our goal is to increase the transparency and reproducibility of research conducted at UW. We invite UW researchers at any level (undergraduate, graduate, post-doctorate, staff, faculty, etc), from any part of campus who want to learn more about how to use cutting-edge technologies to make their papers and publications more reproducible. This workshop is aimed at researchers who write empirical journal articles and want to make it easier for others assess the validity of their work, reuse their work in new research, and enhance public trust in research.

The workshop will feature high-level overviews of, and hands-on tutorials with, these four technologies that support reproducible research:

This workshop has three goals:

  • To showcase the state-of-the-art tools for writing computationally reproducible research. That is, how to write papers and reports in ways that include the computer code used to generate the results described in the document.
  • To provide hands-on tutorials in how researchers can use their tools in their own work
  • To collect feedback from researchers and look for opportunities for interoperability between the existing tools.
