Increasing Openness and Reproducibility: Galter to Sponsor OSF workshop


Please join us for a workshop, hosted by the Center for Open Science, to learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work. The workshop, titled "Practical Steps for Increasing Openness and Reproducibility: An Introduction to the Open Science Framework (OSF)", will be hands-on and attendees will need to bring their own laptop in order to fully participate. Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish.

                        Date: Monday, November 6th, 2017
                        Time: 9:00am - 12:00pm 
                        Location: Robert H. Lurie Medical Research Building, Baldwin Auditorium 
                                         303 E. Superior St. 
                                         Chicago, IL 60611

                        RSVP at


This workshop is aimed at graduate students, postdocs, and faculty across disciplines, who are engaged in quantitative research. The workshop does not require any specialized knowledge of programming. Participants will gain a foundation for incorporating reproducible, transparent practices into their current workflows.


You will learn how to:

  • Create meaningful project documentation
  • Implement version control
  • Write pre-analysis plans
  • Use open source tools like the Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework  to easily implement these concepts in a scientific workflow.
