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.
