Integrating reproducible best practices into biomedical and clinical research: A hands-on workshop for researchers


Wednesday, October 24, 2018, 1:00pm to 3:00pm


Countway Library, Lahey Room #518

Audience: Biomedical or clinical researchers who use code in their research and wish to share it.

Countway Library Open Access Week Program

Code Ocean Workshop

With the aim of improving the reproducibility of the research they publish and fund, journals and funders are increasingly calling for published research to share associated materials. 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:

  • Learn best practices for creating a reproducible biomedical or clinical research project.
  • Assess reporting guidelines for transparent reporting of biomedical and clinical research.
  • Submit code and data for publishing on Code Ocean.

Refreshments will be provided.

Prerequisites: Participants should bring their own data, code, and laptop.

Instructor: April Clyburne-Sherin, Director of Scientific Outreach, Code Ocean
