It has been almost 18 months since the last Reprohack event that we supported, you can read more about that workshop at https://n8cir.org.uk/events/event-resource/reprohack/
This latest event will once again see academics, researchers and software engineers come together to reproduce scientific papers.
The event will also celebrate the launch of Reprohack’s new online hub. The new website has been developed to enable anyone to organise and run their own Reprohack. It includes help and advice about how to organise your event, as well as a database of papers that participants can attempt to reproduce.
There will be two speakers at the event, delivering short talks about additional resources and groups that help promote reproducible science.
Esther Plomp, of TU Delft, will introduce the Turing Way Community, a great resource to continue learning on reproducibility topics.
Stephen Eglen, of Cambridge University, will introduce the CodeCheck project, an initiative working towards integrating reproducibility checks into the scholarly communication process.
If you’ve never attended a Reprohack before, this is naturally a great time to start. Joining this event will give you experience of new approaches to reproducibility, expose you to new code and research methods as well as helping you to offer useful and actionable feedback to researchers. Attending will also help you to develop the skills you need to run your own Reprohacks in the future.
