Ideally, research is collaborative, well-documented, sharable, and can be reproduced by others (or by the original researchers at a later point in time). Not only does this make a researcher’s job MUCH easier, it makes their work more valuable, citable and extensible. This is increasingly important in light of the ‘crisis of reproducibility’ that risks undermining scientific research in so many fields.
This training series, provided by the UK Data Service, walks you through how to:
- make your research ready for open science,
- apply reproducibility to social science and other “tricky” topics, and
- collaborate, document and share research in diverse contexts.
Each week of activity in this bootcamp will comprise a range of components, some synchronous (e.g. workshop sessions led by the instructors and delivered over Zoom) and some asynchronous (e.g. video-recorded talks, contributing to discussion boards, completing work independently/in small groups, etc). Each week you will be :
- Joining one synchronous session from 9:45- 12:00pm (GMT) every Tuesday from 26th April 2022 – 24th May 2022
- Engaging in set tasks to support the learning for that week (at a time convenient to you).
- Actively participating in group work during the week.
- Office hours style support 12:45 – 3:00pm every Wednesday and additional materials will be made available each week.
Due to the nature of the this of this course and the requirement to participate in independent and group work you must be able to make a solid commitment to not only attend all live sessions but also have 4-6 hours each week to complete all tasks.
