The first Research Reproducibility Conference, sponsored by the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library and the Vice President for Research on November 14-15, 2016, brought together researchers, students, administrators, NIH representatives, and more to start a frank discussion on how institutions can help support research reproducibility and make more research true. Conference attendees furthered the dialog around open science, open data, transparency, and good research practices. Post-conference workshops from the Center for Open Science taught us how to use the Open Science Framework.
Speaker videos, posters, slides, and photos can be viewed here. If you would like to make your research more reproducible, here are some readings, tools, and ideas to help you get started. If you have ideas for future events or need assistance with reproducible efforts, please contact us. Thank you again for attending the first Research Reproducibility Conference. Your participation in this event contributed to a richer discussion of how we can all work together to make research true. Continue to follow the Twitter hashtag #MakeResearchTrue for more conversation and resources.
