Open practices are empowering faculty, staff and students at UBC to transform the way they create, manage and share their research and educational efforts. Join us on September 29, 2017 for a full day of hands-on workshops exploring the practice of open scholarship including an afternoon session hosted by the Center for Open Science about the many simple actions researchers can take to increase the efficiency and reproducibility of their work with the Open Science Framework platform.
The Open Science Framework (OSF) is an open source web application that supports the research workflow, enabling scientists to collaborate and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their research by making it much easier (in fact, virtually automatic) for researchers to keep track of what they’ve done, and why. This framework, which does not require any specialized knowledge of programming, was used to work on an important study of the reproducibility of psychology research.
Additional workshops will explore topics ranging from new tools for open data analysis and scientific computation to innovative pedagogies that become possible when students and faculty members become co-creators engaged in meaningful, generative knowledge creation.
All events are free but registration is required.
