This course will focus on issues of reproducibility in research from a broad perspective. It will include an introduction to the differing types of reproducibility, and a discussion of new grant review guidelines and the philosophy that underpins them. The course will look at reproducibility in several contexts, including collecting and communication in experimental research, providing a robust record of computational research, and the limitations and debates around these approaches. We will introduce several tools and approaches to support reproducible research practice, including the RRID portal, Zenodo, Jupyter Notebooks, and best practice in research and data management, communication, and open sharing.
