Last spring, the blog mused about potential connections between open science and copyright. One way to explore the idea of open science more deeply is to attend two upcoming open science workshops that the VCU library is hosting.
These sessions are aimed at graduate students and postdocs, across disciplines, who are engaged in quantitative research. The workshops do not require any specialized knowledge of programming. Participants will gain a foundation for incorporating transparent practices into their current workflows. Topics include:
- project documentation
- version control
- pre-analysis plans
- open source tools like the Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework
The workshops are hands-on. Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish.
