What role do libraries play in promoting best practices for research reproducibility?

Access the presentation slides.

Summary:

Practicing open, reproducible research means sharing the products of that research openly, including data, methods and protocols, code, and publications. Access to clear and detailed reproducible protocols is a key ingredient for research results to be verified and reproduced. 

Join us in this 1-hour webinar presented by Springer Nature and Choice/ACRL highlighting the role libraries can play in promoting best practices for reproducibility, including training and infrastructure support. As a case study, we will cover the importance of protocols for reproducibility and the results of the UCSF partnership with protocols.io.
