16th Open Science Meet-up, 08 Oct 2020

Topic: Reproducibility

Research reproducibility is a key concern across disciplines and stakeholder groups, including research funders, journals and scholarly societies, and has been coined as a “reproducibility crisis” a couple of years ago.

In this meeting we will look into the concept as a spectrum of terms and practices which aim to improve the transparency and reliability of research results. We will focus on how these concepts work out in practice, e.g. when implemented in the context of research projects, publishing or training and teaching.

If you would like to contribute a short presentation about a conceptual approach or practical experiences please do not hesitate to get in touch.

We will use the following working definitions:

  • reproducibility: same data, same methods –>> same/similar findings
  • replication: new data and/or new methods in an independent study –>> same/similar findings
