With the aim of improving the reproducibility of the research they publish and fund, journals and funders are increasingly calling for published research to include associated data and code. However, many researchers have not received training in the best practices and tools for reproducibly sharing their research. This workshop introduces reproducibility best practices for biomedical and clinical research. We will provide a survey of the history and current landscape of reproducibility and identify the barriers. We will present practical solutions and resources. Finally, we will demonstrate tools that help biomedical and clinical researchers overcome barriers to reproducibility and practice using these tools during hands-on activities, including how to share their research code using Code Ocean.


Workshop Goals:

Define reproducibility and its relevance to biomedical and clinical researchers.
Learn best practices for planning, documenting, and sharing your reproducible research project.
Identify guidance to support trial transparency, registration, and reporting.
Explore the issue of improving the transparency of sensitive data.
Assess possible tools to improve reproducibility.
Submit your code for publishing on Code Ocean
