Training Schedule

Open Science and Reproducible Research Tools  @ Lab#1, 2024 Building, Medical Campus
Jun 22 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

What is the open science movement and what does it mean for me as a researcher? In this workshop we will look at the growing importance of open science and explore the issues surrounding making research and data open. As we discuss definitions, strategies, barriers, and incentives to open research we will also begin to take a look at tools that assist users in working in a transparent and reproducible manner. Specifically we will demo the Open Science Framework (OSF), a free, open source, online research project management platform where you can create a personal JHU affiliated account, manage multiple projects, and collaborate or share with other researchers. A prime example of a service that promotes reproducibility, we will share more about ways that you can use the OSF to position yourself as a proponent in the open science movement. <Register>
